To most: As for free upgrades to RISC OS (or other software) we could look at other companies way of doing things. I think that each product should be supported for some time including free bug and security fixes and the support life span should be such that it ends some time after the follow up product is on the market. Take Windows e.g. (it's just an example most know). Microsoft offers free fixes for a Windows version for some time and when a new Windows appears then after some overlapping period of time the older versions are not supported anymore. The needed income is thus not generated by you paying for fixes but by you upgrading to the next version at some time.
