The Icon Bar: News and features: Iyonix Select Pledge list reaches target

Iyonix Select Pledge list reaches target

Posted by Andrew Poole on 13:37, 3/12/2005 | ,
Iyonix Select MotifBack in October, Phil Mellor started off a Pledge List to get at least 99 other people to say they'll subscribe to Iyonix Select for at least one year. This afternoon, the pledge reached its target of 99 pledges.

If you haven't signed the pledge and still want to, the pledge is still accepting new pledges and you have until 31 December to do so. According to the statistics page for the pledge, if pledges continue at the current rate, there will be 163 by the end of the month, although I'm guessing that's not going to happen, but you never know!

Great news for Iyonix and non-Iyonix users - we should see a more unified OS for developers (even if they remain different internally).

But we have to remember that this doesn't actually mean anything will happen. ROL could just ignore this.

I've a depressing feeling that they'll come up with some excuse to dismiss it, if they bother paying any attention to the list whatsoever. It sometimes feels like ROL have absolutely no intention of doing Select for the Iyonix, but instead of just being honest about it they just keep trotting out more and more excuses.

Unfortuanately it's not a total solution to the development issues, it's only an optional update. To maximise potential sales you'd still have to support unupgraded Iyonixs (and Risc PCs for that matter.
