I agree that RISC OS needs new software. The other side of the argument is that PC users - in education - need PC versions of "old" RISC OS applications! Viewpoint - the latest version of DataPower is extensively used in education. There are Oak applications (from Snap Happy to Apollonius) that would be very successful in PC versions. The problem was that in many ways RISC OS software of the 1990s was ahead of it's day. Some staff in school are now asking for the PC equivalent of what was available on RISC OS 10 years ago.

Perhaps the real money will be made by porting "dead" RISC OS applications to the PC world!
