Fortunately for the community we were able to catch a sniff of the planned future, as a result we can now either persuade the opening up of p96, a low cost licensing system or a community effort to produce a new RTG to prevent a monopoly of RTG grfx. Seeing as Jens S. has now shown he sent the email to Mntmn we now know that it is him that has tried to make plans to buy out all rights for P96, why would someone want to buy out rights after all these years on on old driver, I dont think anyone is naive enough not to know the answer to that.
It is up to the community as to how you want to spend your cash and not be held hostage to only one option.
