Why do we need a new CAD package when we've already got ProCAD+? Incidentally, that's also available for Windows - just like Ovation Pro.

Authors should not be slammed for doing this - indeed, look at Textease! There can be very few schools in this country with RISC OS kit capable of running the latest version at sensible speeds - yet Softease continue to support us, even though they have a Windows and MacOS version.

Recall the development of TechWriter for the Apple - this was aimed at providing enough income to subsidise further development under RISC OS.

It all seems very sensible business sense to me. -- Andrew Harmsworth, Cambridge. www.gcse.com owner and author
