I Reply to ksattic:

Well at the show when talking about Select on Iyonix they did state that some card manufactures were better at giving information than others whilst stating that the NVidia module is one area they need to address. Then Paul went on to say that they were considering other cards so by impication it points to the GForce card in the Iyonix. If you say that the information is readily available then it does not seem to square up with the show talk.

Entirely agree and thats why I got my Iyonix nearly 3 years ago and I'm a Select Subscriber too. However not everyone can afford to upgrade or will upgrade even given new hardware so anything that may encourage them to spend on RISCOS and applications/hardware and to stay with RISCOS has to be good to some degree however small. If we did not offer anything to those who still have RISCPC's then they might just leave the market and once gone it is harder to get them back. As I see it ROL and the other developers need to cover as many market segments as they can i.e

Old machines , encourage them if possible to upgrade to new hardware be it Iyonix/A9 or to a secondhand RISCPC.

Offer them something to stay with RISCOS, like Graphics acceleration on A9,Iyonix or even the RISCPC

If they do go to the dark side offer them VirtualRISCPC again some money comes back to the market.
