2307:

If what you say is true, about the HAL being dropped for the Iyonix Select, then I and probably many others would consider it a backwards step.

As you state in your last paragraph, the hardware developer should do the HAL and drivers, leaving RO Ltd just doing a clean OS.

The OS should then be able to be improved much faster, without the individual hardware considerations having to be a factor.

Where did you get the information from that the HAL would be dropped ?
