Spot on. It's a great shame that despite the harmany that really exists, some people, for their own nefarious purposes, wish to cause the appearance of discord.

Let me clarify. RISCOS Ltd owns all right, title and interest in versions of RISC OS created in the last decade. That is clear from reading through the licences. If some wish to disagree without having any knowledge of the materials, then that is their choice.

A grevous deceit has been perpetuated on the whole RISC OS community. I find it most ironic that abuse is being hurled at those that are trying to resolve this deceit for good.

A lot of people have invested their time, their money and their hopes in ROOL. It is imperative that this investment gets its due return, for the good of everyone. In order to ensure this RISCOS Ltd has already written to the ROOL directors.

This letter quite specifically states that RISCOS Ltd support what ROOL is doing, in particular RISCOS Ltd supports (quoting from the letter):

Release of the source code by RISC OS Open Ltd either via the website or sold on a CD.

RISC OS Open Ltd (releasing) RISC OS ROMs without having to pay a licence fee to RISCOS Ltd.

RISC OS Open Ltd (offering) a commercial licence to potential RISC OS 5 users and to profit from such a licence.

Perhaps the vitriol would be better directed at those responsible for the deceit, not the victims of it.
