Yes, you're right. But I suppose the important bit of what I was /trying/ to say was that ROL was not asking for subscriptions from IYONIX users just in case they *might* go ahead with a suitable version. Once they knew the support was there they would go ahead. Though we might now take their plans less seriously in light of this latest annoucement.

The whole point of Select, I thought, was that users could get their hands on the latest features from ROLs development team before anyone else. This worked in the case of Select vs. Adjust. Select users benefited from the beginning as the operating system was developed under the scheme. Users who stuck with RISC OS 4 had to wait until Adjust before they got their hands on all the updates.

But now the reverse seems to be happening. Select subscribers have waited for months and months to hear of a new version. And now they learn that the A9home users will benefit before they do. It simply does not make sense.

Select customers should be ROL's first priority.
