The article we point out earlier on The Iconbar asking What is the point of RISCOS Ltd? has gathered quite a bit of attention. In particular, the "protagonist" who asked many of the questions of Paul Middleton during the presentation owned up and apologized for his manner.

Other items which have come out of the discussion any may not have previously been obvious are that Paul Middleton is the sole director, and that Laurence van Someren (of Aleph1) remains the secretary. Incidentally, Aleph1's last real interaction with RISC OS was when it GPLed the sources to !PC for release by riscos.info. Also, the RISCOS Ltd. accounts are due at the end of November, which will likely be pored over.

Over on MyRISCOS there's an anonymous post titled ironically titled "Don't believe what you read", which is an obvious follow on to the TIB article (with also obvious authorship). However, since the article cites no references at all or state any details, it comprehensively fails its eponymous aim.

It also rather narrowly tries to frame an argument about ROL's products, but neatly avoids the issue that ROL's products don't work machines which people have bought (Iyonix) and are now buying (BeagleBoard) and has sadly stopped on hardware it did support (A9).

Surprisingly, the debate has not yet spilled over into comp.sys.acorn.misc.

  I disagree

I disagree with everything you've said. On the other hand, I completely agree.

(I just felt we needed some debate here, too, so I'm debating with myself)

No... not another thread to follow!

We may find ourselves embracing summaries of summaries of discussions in a few weeks! Perhaps they could be compiled into a handy booklet form to read over Christmas.
