RISC OS Crisis Over: CTL and ROL hold talks.

Posted by Andrew Duffell on 17:30, 15/7/2004 | , , , , , , , ,
 
Shattered CogWe have recieved news of a secret meeting of RISCOS Ltd, Castle Technology Ltd and the following AMSs: Advantage Six Ltd, MicroDigital Ltd and VirtualAcorn.
On Wednesday 14th July a meeting, chaired by Mike Glover (of Icon Technology) was held at which directors of RISCOS Ltd and Castle Technology Ltd, and representatives of the AMSs and RISCOS Ltd shareholders were present.

All parties are pleased to announce that a new initiative has been agreed. This will ensure that the RISC OS hardware and software developers can continue with the development and sales of their respective products.

Over the coming months, RISCOS Ltd will be working with Castle to provide relevant features of the Select scheme to IYONIX pc users through the Merlin project. Tematic (Castle‘s engineering division) will be concentrating on the core operating system technologies and with RISCOS Ltd they will be responsible for the future development of key features of the RISC OS desktop environment.

Many would agree that this is the best outcome for the RISC OS crisis. RISC OS Ltd will continue to function, and Select features will finally migrate to RISC OS 5.

As far as I know, moss has only had one thing stopping him from getting his Iyonix - a severe lack of money.
