RISCOS.net brought down by the might of Microsoft...

By Chris Williams. Published: 4th Jul 16:04:43 | Permalink | Printable

The Drobe Launch Pad Editors were astonished this afternoon when we logged onto the RISCOS.net website only to find that the site had been replaced by a Microsoft Windows NT welcome page!


The offending page

Obviously their loyalty to RISC OS is dwindling however if they had opted to stay with our beloved platform, perhaps they would not be suffering so many problems in the stability of their site...


We feel sorry that our newest rival has sunk so low in order to host (or not host, as the case may be) their site ;)
