I agree with the items identified as being good aditions to RISC OS and as has been stated the simple changes to the UI for setting up networking makes things look and feel a lot slicker. As you also say ROL are between a rock and a hard place in that they need money to do the updates and hence have the Select scheme but because it is a payable option then not everyone gets access to the good additions like the alpha stuff. In an ideal work then ROL would give away for free the components that need wider adoption and then the whole user base could make use of them but I don't think ROL could survive in their present form if they did that however by virtually giving away RO4.02/RO4.39 as softloads to RO3.7/RO4.02 respectively then I at least think they are trying to extend the user base for their components
