Your enthusiasm is fantastic, Paul. And thanks for another interesting article.

You're right, RISCOS Ltd is a tiny company. But it could make a massive contribution to the platform. It should open source its branch of RISC OS so that the community (which is also small) can make the best use of the development it has done over years (which I value highly) in combination with RISC OS Open.

The subscription scheme could continue, allowing enthusiasts to fund important and democratically decided development. The code produced would be open source also.

While RISCOS Ltd remains closed, access to the small amount of money in my bank account are closed also. I'm no longer interested in funding cul-de-sac development.
