Well the statement clearly says it's intentions, but no one (including Castle) can speculate the outcome now of course! Castle appears to have never bought RISC OS Ltd just to shelve it and market it's own shelf product? Surely Castle would have (and does) realize the damage to RISC OS and Iyonixs if RISC OS was just simply bought out and canned (disposed). Castle's claim to forth coming developments obviously couldn't happen overnight, which is why I think Castle could not afford to dump the great aging RISC OS. The market gap would be too big (RISC OS to Iyonixs) for too long before Castle's competition to catch up (if it ever would in this situation). Anyway, wouldn't too many brassed of RISC OS users (if their market was dumped) move on to the other platform if Iyonixs was not ready to take the crunch? At least it is re-assuring to hear from Castle. :angel: ? Cheers, Steve.
