Having followed this discussion, only one thing is clear - support Castle. They are professional in their business outlook, and are actively seeking and taking on customers. What are ROL doing? Supporting a few thousand Select subscribers.

If I was a newcomer to this scene, what do you think I would do? I wouldnt give a toss about the politics, I'd go for something which I feel has some future - Iyonix. Castle have the resources, and they have RISC OS 5 to develop further to meet the needs of their current/future customers.

If I was a corporate customer who approached Castle with a few to developing a project, what do you think I would do if Castle turned around and said that OS development is dependent on ROL and their handful of engineers, and that turnaround time is counted in several months, if not years? I'd quite rightly go elsewhere.

<flameproof> This all seems like a very silly discussion. Why must it go on? </flameproof>
