It is a bit surprising to see that Omega owners are such an important part of ROL's business plans, bearing in mind the apparent disappearence of MD from the RISC OS market. Perhaps ROL are trying to see just how many Omegas were produced compared to the number of RISC OS licences bought by MD...;o)

I have to say that I do not regret letting my Select subs lapse after buying my Iyonix. My Iyonix will be three years old in December and there is still no clear sign that there will be any products forthcoming from ROL to replace RO5 (partially or completely).

The money I have saved been able to use far more effectively supporting products that do enhance my Iyonix experience, whether commercial RISC OS (32bit upgrades, Artworks) freeware (PCITV tv card) or shareware RISC OS (Firefox and Gimp Print).

I doubt that anyone could seriously say that an Iyonix owner who remained subscribed to Select since late 2002 on the basis that a version of Select would be produced to replace RO5 has had 'value for money' from ROL.
