Omega users are getting a good deal that isn't available for Iyonix users because ROL's products run on Omega's with very little if any changes from the RISC PC version. Producing an Iyonix versions is a little less trivial.

Castle made a choice along time ago to develop RISC OS 5 rather than working with ROL, if any one is obligated to provide improvements surely it is Castle.... ROL have other priorities, including moving RISCOS to a 32bit neutral code base, which must be done before it can run on the Iyonix...

I do agree that some people may have been unclear about what ROL required from them to formalise a registration of interest in an Iyonix version of Select. I wonder if they have more than 15 registrations now?

It should be remembered that ROL are a small business and that the resources required to build an Iyonix friendly Select are quite large. Why put all your eggs in the Iyonix basket when clearly they have other projects that they see as having a higher priority.

I am sure that if the demand was shown then ROL would respond to the best of their ability.
