What a hash! You can't exactly blame Drobe for this mess. When you don't release any info about your new product for months, a leak is bound to happen. The rather messy way RISC OS companies are advertising their new machines won't draw new users to the platform.
Arenaman has made a good point. Where is this mysterious Evolution PC? Already it is out of date (Running only an SA233) and it hasn't even been released yet! Will the PCI project be dumped? If RS can't manage to develop an desktop, one wonders whether the Portable has any hope.
RiscStation has shown flashes of good PR at times. They showed a slight interest in a sponsorship deal I offered them, for one.
