Well RISC OS developer may be being a bit disingenuous by not mentioning the license fee paid by Castle for RISC OS but "no comment" as if the even bigger investment in Castle by thousands of RISC OS users over the past 10 years is not their concern and beneath them is downright ignorant and arrogant if true.

This issue reveals the ghastly situation that an OS with world-beating software is in: the main hope for hardware development aloof and distant and the OS developer hedging its bets on the A9 - a worthy but inferior computer to the Iyonix - or facing certain oblivion with the sweetened pill of a lumped retirement sum if the only hardware RISC OS runs on is PC/Mac based.
