mckinlay> I think you're probably being a tad unfair to RISC OS Ltd, Select is *not* simply a set of "bugfixes".

The difference is (arguably) more akin to the difference between Windows 2000 and XP - yes they're based on common technology (to a very large degree) but with some improvements made and an extensive change to the GUI.

MS may make bugfixes available for free (but remember you *paid* for a working OS to start with so let's not get too enthused at MS's generosity), they *do* however charge when you upgrade from 2000 to XP - Just as RISC OS ltd charge when you opt for Select.
