"IMHO CTL don't want VA(RPC) marketed", Bernie.

Another way of looking at it could be that Virtual Acorn is bringing in a lot of money to ROL, Castle would only get a smallish percentage of that (the license fee that goes from ROL to Castle (previously Pace)). By making it very expensive Castle could have been trying to get ROL to stop suppling VirtualAcorn with RISC OS so that VirtualAcorn would buy a version of RISC OS direct from Castle. This might make Castle more per unit than the license cost from ROL.

Just a thought, and rather sound from a buisness point of view.
