In reply to NW and bucksboy: -

Totally agree with you. RO these days is pretty hopeless at browing the internet save for basic html sites. Netsurf is a good effort, but what about the rich content sites that use Flash? In my in my opinion, I'd rarther Castle and ROL address these issue instead of adding little fancy bits to the OS or creating yet another OS fork.

In reply to fibble:


Yes most if not all development on RO is done in their part time these days. However it a few got together and created a product that most users wanted, they'd be able to charge for it and subsequently make some money for the time and effort they put it in.

It seems to be that the few developments that take place are not addressing in anyway shape or form the issues that many people have raised time and time again in the last few years. Issues that have been raised on here and in the newsgroups. Now, I and others are aware that some things require licenses, but there are starting points that could be made. For example bringing together the work that as been done on KinoAmp and the various MP3 players and the shoutcast radio client in to one multimedia application. Something that would at least start to give use the equivelant of the likes of Media Player, Real Player and AMP.

There are things that developers can do and make money from, as long as the end product is an easy to use polished off program.
