Ouch! That's all we need. The single OS dedicated desktop manufacturer to drop out. I understand that forked OS argument etc. but as Castle is still trading, the legacy issues between Castle and RiscOS still prevail. I really fail to see how this situation helps any of us who are keen to see RO continue, and development to prosper. The ONLY real decision that would affect us all positively is when the forked OS merges, and all RO industry starts to sing from the same hymn sheet. Then, and then only, will inward funding allow software development relevant to 2008-9 arrive.

I wonder if this situation has been exacerbated by the banking industry's reluctance to lend to anything other than sound, low-risk ventures. How many bridging loans have Iyonix Ltd had to take in the past years?

So what now? Has the A9 had anything done to it to make it a reliable, fully functioning unit that will comfortably plug this gap in the market?

...and yes, welcome back Drobe. Good to see ya!
