In reply to Jess: "A select RPC is by far the most usable out of it, an Iyonix and an OS X mac, but it is too slow for many modern functions."

Comparing my RiscPC/Kinetic/ViewFinder/Select against the Iyonix, the Iyonix is far more usuable with the faster processor and vastly quicker disc interface. The only Select features I notice on the old machine are the green icons, and the different hourglass and how it is there for so much longer.

I'm afraid after 3 years none of the useful Select features have proved to be a necessity, and have laregly been forgotten and not missed on RISC OS 5. Some of the best additions were API extensions, but have not been capitalised upon because developers wont support a subsection of the market based on a diminishing number of old machines.
