The fork is making a difference to me too, my brother bought an Iyonix but quickly sold it as it could not meet his needs, a Select machine could have (major issue was no alpha-blending in !Draw or Artworks, Select would at least resolve this in !Draw). I'm now contemplating an A9 but would rather an Iyonix, as I'd like a TV card, dual head, and maybe accelerated graphics, also the Iyonix USB implementation I think has a bit more traction now than the Simtec one. But having seen RISC OS 5, I'm not sure I could put up with it's limitations compared to Select/Adjust.

You have to wonder, with ROL being basically a one-man band, if it would not be too expensive for Castle to buy them, or at least a controlling stake, and put an end to this madness once and for all.
