Yes, RISCOS Ltd are still around!

Your condescending attitude is what caused 100% of the RISCOS Ltd shareholders to totally reject all the claims that were made by Castle 4 years ago, when they tried to present Castle as being the only future for RISC OS. "Death by Powerpoint" was the phrase that sprung to mind.

For anyone not aware of the RISCOS Ltd Investors, this includes:- Paul Beverley, Bernard Bollons, Paul Corke, Roy Heslop, Chris Evans, Richard Jozefowski, Pineapple Software, Andrew Rawnsley, Allan Rawnsley, RISC OS Investment Group, Spacetech, Stuart Tyrrell, Paul Richardson, Ian Walker, Gordon McLaren, Laurie Van Someren, Iain Logan and many others. A group of people with lots of experience of the RISC OS community and people who will be known to most RISC OS users as having integrity and honesty.

They didn't find your attitude funny then, and I'm sure they don't now. As you know full well the Set Top Box markets and the Desktop Markets are two completely separate areas.

It is nice to see Castle are still around as your Accounts for y/e 30th September 2007 have only just been filed, several months late. Iyonix Ltd in comparison are over 10 months late in filing its accounts and last filed accounts as a Dormant Company on 10/08/07, so I take it that the millions of pounds of business done by Castle's licencees is slow in coming through as cash to the Castle group.

We are not playing. We are doing what we were set out to do and keep RISC OS alive for the users and the companies involved in RISC OS for whom RISC OS is their living.

We want to continue to work with everyone still involved in the RISC OS market, and contrary to various claims we have done nothing beligerent to anyone in the RISC OS world. We are only maintaining our rights that were clearly set out in our Head Licence with Element 14. The RISCOS Ltd shareholders are fully aware of those rights. It is only Castle that are seeking to make out that those rights do not exist.
