Isn't the point of open-sourcing parts of riscos5 that there would be no longer a need for Select on the Iyonix?

I personally feel that ROLtd has done more wrong than right for the riscos community. First telling the world that they would never 32bit the OS. (which let to many coders leaving the RO scene ) So Castle searches an alternative route: Pace's riscos 5 Then RO Ltd DOES 32bit their fork of the OS and does this in a way that it's even more incompatible with RO5 and to make mathers worse another shared C lib too.

People always seem to blame Castle for the OS fork but in thruth only RO ltd seems responsible. You should read the early year reports of RO ltd.( around 1999). A lot of people got always fired and there seemed to be a lot of arguments all the time. Thus a lot of money being wasted!
