Well, as an Iyonix user with an Adjust ROMed RiscPC I'd buy it right away if it were available for Iyonix; and that without whatever Merlin ends up adding to the OS.

Personally, I'd prefer to hand over cash and get Adjust32 on a CD in exchange - I'm just old fashioned that way - but I can see why RISCOS Ltd prefer subscribers funding on-going developement. Adjust certainly shows that RISCOS Ltd can deliver on their promises.

Crumbs; can you imagine them turning round and saying there's insufficient interest ? I've no idea of the level of enthusiasm voiced for Merlin. Was that alone not warm enough to suggest that there was the demand from the Iyonix user base to make a Select32 (including Merlin) worthwhile ?

It must be one hell of a task to merge this forked OS - They are wise to tread carefully - Presumably the continuing success of Virtual RiscPC must make RISCOS Ltd wonder if their time would not be better invested developing that further.

Looks like 2005 will be another year of interesting twists and turns for users of our favourite opperating system.
