You state I don't believe for an instant ROL can possibly be solvent, throwing away the last of the cash to fight a scheme to help keep RISC OS in use would be arrogant in the extreme, given that purpose is why they were created themselves; and in the long term, they have failed.

Was not ROL created for the purpose of developing RISC OS 4? On that they have suceeded. We have had several RISC OS 4 based updates that benefit both Risc PC/A7000 users and Virtual Acorn users. RISC OS 4 has been 32bitted and is available on the 32bit A9home. Advantage6 continue to make headway with making RISC OS 6 available for their machine, at which point Select will also be able to be softloaded.

I therefore dispute your ascertation that in the long term ROL have failed.
