Oh stop your sniding at ROL, it's just boring now. You've turned from RISC OS advocate in to a "me too" whingebucket on that matter. Give it a rest.

I don't believe that the majority of sales of "Hybrid" machines are to folks who have been "away from RISC OS" as you put it -- for many, it's the logical step up from a RiscPC they already have -- they get some good speed improvements and can run Windows software as required. For some, as a laptop, it'll be a 2nd machine to their RiscPC.

Iyonix owners aren't badgering CTL anywhere near enough and CTL don't, themselves, want ROL to even exist as far as I can see. With CTL pushing against ROL producing a whole OS (and face it, you're plain WRONG about "most" of Select not requiring kernel changes, so odds and sods of Select addons on top of RO5 are out of the question) there's simply not going to be an Iyonix Select. CTL are the ones you need to convince that a Select for Iyonix should happen. ROL are (ttbomk) ready. Got a statement from CTL to prove otherwise? I'm sure ROL would love to see it ;-)
