This is aparently due to a legal dispute over licence terms. About The Author Eugenia Loli Ex-programmer, ex-editor in chief at OSNews.com, now a visual artist/filmmaker.

Without knowing any of the facts my sympathies go to the developers that spend their time working on the OS and now can’t make any money out of it. 2004-06-16 10:02 pm Anonymous The last thing a non-mainstream OS with a small userbase needs is infighting between remaining developers. This kind of thing is just going to make RISC OS fade away even faster. It’s a shame as for a while it was the best desktop OS around IMO. 2004-06-17 1:00 am Anonymous I really love that OS. I hope this isn’t the end of developing it.. 2004-06-17 4:32 am Anonymous Castle seems to be going to keep supporting the sublisencees of ROL, even if they are competing against their own RISC OS 5 / Iyonix combination. Im sure Castle will reveal what ROL broke in the liscence soon enough.
