Not sure if this is news, scene, or even OT:
@mods: Feel free to move.
25th September 2008
IOYONIX Ltd would like to announce that from the 30th September 2008 it will not be possible
to order an IYONIX computer. There are however very limited supplies of IYONIX computers
available for supply and where possible we will be delighted to supply computers before this
date (orders will be dealt with on a first come first served basis and are limited).
>From 1st October 2008 support for the IYONIX computer will continue through:
1. the IYONIX dealer network
2. the IYONIX website (www.iyonix.com)
3. by email (firstname.lastname@example.org & email@example.com).
In the meantime Jack Lillingston & John Ballance would like to thank all their customers
for their business and support over the last 15 years. IYONIX Ltd will continue to trade
until stocks of IYONIX and other Acorn RISC OS parts and accessories are exhausted.
The opening up of the RISC OS source code through ROOL is unaffected by this announcement.
Fax: 0870 705 8879
Since Acorn went to the wall several manufacturers have developed & marketed hardware for the RiscOS platform. Arguably (unlike the Amiga) RiscOS has remained a viable platform since the parent company folded. Now there's only one company remaining in the RiscOS hardware business...
...looks like the end is nigh for yet another 'things could have been so much better' platform.
I sincerely wish:
...and the many other contributors to the RiscOS platform all the best for the future.
