hzn: Agreed, for me the upgrade brings no benefits, as my graphics card is fine and I don't want USB2. Yet I must pay a not inconsiderable sum to upgrade, in order to receive future bug fixes? No thanks, I'll wait for the open source build...

It's good that Castle are still showing commitment to developing the OS, and I agree that the recent free updates have been of value, so it's fair for them to try to recoup some money I suppose. But a compulsory 'buying-in' to future bug fixes - of which there are still several I've put up with for years - does not attract me in the slightest.
