hzn: Your idea is fine too, I was just thinking that ROL need to make a compelling reason to buy Select on Iyonix, and making it the only way to get Cineroma would probably ensure a lot of Iyonix users get Select. Somehow we need to phase out one strain of ROS, and RO4 is closer to being available on all RISC OS machines than RO5 is. I think giving one fork of RISC OS *major* features over the other would make sure the weaker fork would die off and we'd be left with one version of RISC OS, which is (I think) what we all want. Personally I don't care which strain goes forward, as long as one of them does, and Select seems to be more likely to turn up on Iyonix than RO5 turning up on the other machines.
