In reply to quite a few here: What is amazing still is that instead of looking forward to the open sourcing and seeing it as a chance for the better an amazing part of this discussion looks into the licensing issue. I am sure that the ones behind the open sourceing did spend some time on thinking about this issue and thus came to the decision taken for good reasons. I kind-of have the feeling that some posters here might be tempted upon getting a present for birthday or X-mas they first of all start to ask if they may sell it on eBay if they don't like it. What a strange world...

In reply to Ginger2: "If I were RISCOS Ltd I'd be interested in becoming the defacto distribution. Perhaps they could go down a Mandriva-style route where official paid-up (40 quid a year? Count me in) members of the "ROL" club get 12 month advance access to their distribution as well as some extra support / newsletters / niceties." You sure that 12 months is enough considering that the last upgrade for Select took more than twice that time and is still not out ;-)

In reply to riscosopen: Thanks for the additional FAQ entries as well as your other work so far!
