Hi all. Wish New Zealand was closer to Wakefield... ah well. Hope you all enjoyed the show, sounds like it was awesome.

How much control does ROL have over RISC OS. Do they have any at all; are they just developers? If you can just go to Pace and bodge together your own version, would it be possible to find ourselves with lots of RISC OSs ?!?

Personally I think if there's ever to be competition a single, separate company has got to 100% own the OS. Develop a 32-bit OS feature-equal with your 26-bit one. No more crazy licensing issues :)

Neil and co: PDAs are definately the way to go. For a start, RISC OS is native to ARM processors which use so little power. If we could get some ARM-native PDAs and laptops out there, perhaps businesses might find RO more attractive.

I guess we can be happy RISC OS didn't die with Acorn... :)
