"The legal mechanations of 2004 had nothing to do with this"

Assuming that ROL had to pay hefty legal fees during the OS licensing saga, I'm sure that it does. That money could have been spent on hiring an extra programmer, for example.

While I agree that the decision to focus on Adjust32 rather than Select is harsh on Select subscribers given the payment format, it would have been ridiculous for ROL to go another year developing for twelve year old machines (or presumably several years, had RO5 made it on to the A9).

The question is will ROL be able to keep their customers happy given the risk they took?
