> Over all, RISC OS has completely lost its appeal for me due to all the ridiculous infighting an non-cooperation between folk (Castle, ROL, Microdicital, Windfall, Simtec, etc) -- a tiny market ripped apart by people who should know a lot better.

This does at least *appear* to be true; I've always believed that the whole ROL/Hardware partners setup was fundamentally flawed. It's a pity they couldn't have all come together to form *one* company; maybe that's just naive of me.

However, I'm hopeful for the Iyonix, if only for the fact that they seem to want to help the market by giving out free documentation. If only they and ROL can come together with some agreement about the future of Select for RO5, we might get somewhere.
