It's very sad that the Iyonix is out of production but not unexpected.
Castle deserve a huge pat on the back for the continuation of Acorns desktop line in '98 (the RISC PC and the A7000+). And for the further development of the "Acorn" range (Iyonix).
I'm sure Castle and Termatic worked hard to bring us a 32-bit OS running on faster X-Scale processors accessing RAM at DDR speeds, all of the things we'd wanted for years and I'd like to thank them for that.
It's a testament to RISC OS and the user base that the platform survived this long after the breakup of Acorn, but sadly, I feel, this is the end of RISC OS.
It's a shame that things didn't work out better. I believed that when castle purchased RISC OS lock stock and barrel from Pace that a new Acorn had been born, and once again the platform would be re-united and re-focused. Instead the platform continued to be split apart by OS forks and vaporware and the user-base dwindled.
