I think you'd agree that Select subscribers are part of the "active RISC OS market" that we often refer to. They're the ones who buy stuff and it appears that many of them are now Iyonix owners. My evidence is completely anecdotal, however, I know quite a few Select users who've supported the Select scheme. They feel that they've made a financial contribution to some significant OS development which without them wouldn't have happened. Also, they've stayed Select subscribers because they do value the work that's been done. Now, these users I've describe would love to have brand spanking new machines, but are reluctant to because they don't want to lose the Select features that they've become accustomed to.

Having said that, I'm sure there are also people who don't really care about Select; that's fine. But I'm hoping that very soon we'll at least be given the choice of running Select on the Iyonix. I'm convinced there's a market for it.

The most sensible thing RISC OS Ltd. could do is to survey all the Select members. They keep telling us that the necessary support needs to be there, but they haven't actually asked us!

Anyway, enough already.
