Julian>I agree completely. Which of course shows how *bogus* the value of trying to link the outcome of one (probably ROL's *only*) foray into Open Source Software. And (arguably) as it has helped with GimpPrint I'd consider it a success too.

James>Well yes - but - I think my point was for all the effort ROL claim to have made it hasn't lead to an RO Select release for Iyonix. No doubt ROL will put that down to insufficient interest by punters (surely that's a function of *how much confidence people have in ROL* and that can't be high considering the ever lengthening delay between Select releases) and someone (other than ROL) having to do the difficult legwork of implementing the hardware dependant bits.

At every point ROL can argue it's someone else's fault. Which I think it the point of such spin, the truth (however) may lie elsewhere.
