"Would it not be feasible for Select development to be split, say six months on operating system work and six months on applications for the platform - such as finishing off the port of Firefox, porting the Gnash Flash player or an open source Java engine?"

Unfortunately, all of these need huge OS improvements to be truly usable. If RISCOS Ltd. wanted to make a contribution to the application world, I look forward to their efforts improving NetSurf, ArtWorks and Impression.
