Interesting thread.

First of all I'm not surprised that ROL - or should I now write ROD now - asks the Select subscribers only since they did expect all those wanting Select for the IYONIX pc to keep up subscribing to Select :-) As you remember they wanted our committment (read this as money) for their committment (read this as plans to do a Select for the IYONIX pc at some time in some future). But we know that their business model seems to be "Acquire new clients by asking the current ones if they want to be a client" ... and thus they address the Select and/or the Foundation subscribers. As for asking for future plans you should know that in the past AFAIR ROL never said which new feature will be available when but just what might make it into the next release with no dates mentioned.

My hope is that Castle will not sit back and let ROL/ROD stick to their way of doing things like they did until now (or to be precise: gave the impression of doing). One important issue as for Select for the IYONIX pc is what it really will be: Based on RISC OS 5 with Select-Add-Ons, or based on RISC OS 4.

Yes, I'm interested in the odd Select feature for my IYONIX pc but I will definitively wait until ROL/ROD has something to look at for the IYONIX pc before I put any money there since. Thus I can't write the mail with a firm "yes" to developer at riscos dot com since I wouldn't know what I would say "yes" to.
