You have to ask; what is the point of buying up the rights to old titles if there is no intention to develop them further. It surely can't make economic sense just to make the occasional sale of mature products.

Sitting on those titles for whatever reason is one thing, actively discouraging the conversion of programs where the developers are willing to do the work is another entirely.

The future of the platform is in the use 32 bit processors regardless of which manufacturer's machine you are backing. Ensuring that as much software as possible is able to run on new machines is essential for the long term survival of RISC OS, and should out weigh any short term attempts to favour any one company.
