ROL carrying on the same way - you mean getting people to pay 3 years subscriptions for nothing? Well at least if RO5 was open sourced that damaging disgrace to the RISC OS market would end. The handfull of really useful Select UI features could be easily incorporated in to RO5, and thats an end to the stupid will they wont they game they continue to play over Select on the Iyonix.

With an open source release of the HAL and Castle created drivers, even if a core of the OS had to be supplied as a binary for licencing reasons, it would still be extremely easy to port to any ARM device. So why would anyone like STD then go to ROL for their version.
