I'd probably conject that STD chose Select rather RO5 because it's the more desirable OS from a desktop user's point of view, I know that the features in Select have me more interested in an A9 than an Iyonix, despite the very numerous hardware benefits the Iyonix has. And to be fair on Castle, they have demoed RO5 on MiMagic boards and the like for embedded customers. RO5 might be the 'better' OS from a technical point of view, to be honest, I really wouldn't know, but Select is a great deal more appealing from a 'give me the nicest version of RISC OS' point of view.
