I am somebody who learnt everything I know about computers from 1985 using a BBC micro then on to to a A5000 then a RiscPc moved into PC world after 1998 after Acorn folded, then got back into RiscOS after decided to upgade my RiscPc so my daugher could run simple progarms without crashing the computer. I now use my ageing RiscpC Bought in 1996 more than than the three PCs bought and sold since then, everyone of them was repaired at least least twice. The RiscPc has went from Strongarm to Risc OS 4 to Bigger Harddrive to Select without giving any problems. I have upgraded my old system using companies like Rcomp Cta Cje Castle Silicon Apdl to name but a few. The support has been great to say the least if i have a query about something you get a reply the next day or sooner, sometimes from the person who actually wrote the software (rcomp)or designed the hardware (std), coming from a background where I have left a PC into a dealer to get a faulty CD driver Fixed and to to told call back in two weeks this is impressive. The bottom line is there is a limited number of dealers selling Riscos Stuff which seems to be reducing.I will be buying a Iyonix and if i need a laptop I will buy from one of the dealers mentioned in the recent articles even if they are more expensive because if we dont support them noboby will be developing the Riscos world. Most people writing into the Drobe are very computer technical the majortiy of people arent we rely on the info from enthusaists web pages and support from dealers. Lone may it continue.
