How much use would ICC profiles be under RISCOS if the OS itself doesn't support colour management? Unless Artworks, Draw Photodesk and the PS printer drivers used profiles and there was some way of calibrating the monitor it would still not be possible to originate profiled work on the system so would it be worth the effort?
Except to a few afficionados or those with an historical dependence, what is RISCOS really worth, compared with other continuously updated OS such as Linux or BSD? Some while ago I bought an Iyonix. That's it. I will never need to buy another RISCOS system, because there will never be another one sufficiently better than the Iyonix. The OS will never progress to preemptive multitasking because that would kill most of the existing programs. The system is tied to slow processors which mostly lack floating point. They are outclassed by a factor of five to ten by processors that other OS designers consider obsolete.
This is the reality. So what is my reaction to Castle and their IP lockin via the SharedCLibrary?
