highlandcattle>Actually that's already happened - remember ROL's endorsement of VARPC - that in effect requires Windows to run RISC OS.

I am pleased to see that Drobe has *once again* used the "legal issues" of the past to suggest that that was the cause of delay. That happened *2 years ago* and ROL promised certain things to be done *after* that date when they *would have known* how much money they had and what impact legal costs would have had. Using that old excuse is lame - really....

ROL have (for their own reasons) reprioritised their developments to suit the A9Home - with the knock on effect on *every other* RO Select subscriber has had to wait. The legal mechanations of 2004 had *nothing* to do with this - and once again RO Select subscribers have taken a hit on the chin.

*THAT* is a large cause of the delay. As it happens in that context the delay is understandable (though for users of older machines a little unfair - given that they've paid in advance and *others* who haven't have seen the benefits).

If this sort of thing continues (e.g., Massive Delay, Issue lists of "Promised features, Subscription Request, further delay) then ROL's credibility will become as good as MicroDigital's - but hopefully that sort of thing won't happen.
