I have an Iyonix but have not been a Select subscriber for a while (last installed version was 4.37)

The problem for me is not just whether or not Select 32 provides 'significant' improvements over RO5 but also the fact that I decided not to buy products again that require deposits paid or subscriptions in the hope that something useful is delivered the money you place in advance.

Until there is a finished product (like Adjust) then I can only ever be a potential customer.

I realise that people have found Select on a RiscPC to be a great improvement. For my useage patterns, Select did not provide any noticeable improvement over RO4 and a number of disadvantages. RO5 is pretty much what I want, fast stable and a clean simple desktop.

If aspects of Select/Adjust that make my Iyonix go noticeably faster were to be included without the multi-user logon (and the associated additional complexity in the Select !Boot) and GUI 'enhancements' then I might be interested in those improvements.

Ultimately the biggest problem for me is having to buy products from a company that I decided I wasn't going to buy from again.
