The foundations of RISC OS are dated and were largely so even as a *microcomputer* operating system ten years ago! Had Acorn ported some of their technologies to UNIX and surfed the Linux wave, rather than dipping their toes in the Java wave, they might still be around today with a multi-million pound valuation *and* making money.

But the "RISC OS is best" attitude saw Acorn miss yet another opportunity, even as the company and the community demonstrated an unprecedented awareness of the mistakes of the past.
