Personally I find this to be a real dilemma. like BrianH I'd like to get Select for my Iyonix (I was a subscriber some time ago), but my enthusiasm will depend on what ROL actually offer.

For example, I wouldn't be willing to give up the obvious advantages that RO 5 has over current Select versions (such as USB functionality, pop up printers, fast boot etc.).

Nonetheless, I'd be willing to subscribe just for the developments that have been made to the wimp (e.g. icon cut & paste).

If they can merge the two properly, they'll have a guaranteed subscription. But given the uncertainty of the situation, I'm sure there are others like me who've not indicated anything to ROL, with the result that the 18 users stated will be very much on the low side.
