drjones: Thank you for your comments, I enjoyed reading them. Our policy on reproducing email is there so that we can use any correspondance as we see fit, especially when something of public interest is sent in or a company decides to get nasty. With all due respect, I doubt that you would be able to "ram" us with a libel case if we reproduced an email that you wrote and you explicitly gave to us. For a start, we'd probably have very good reaons for doing so.

The article is not a personal attack and we would certainly never hold someone's nationality and choice of language against them. We appreciate each and every reader, regardless of where they come from. Yes, there's playful sarcasm in the above article but it's the interests of the "little guy" (your words) that we're looking out for. The angle of the article is on the emulation situation, Axel's email was merely a catalyst for the write up. We all find it frustrating that we're effectively trapped on a sub-1GHz processor architecture that's heading off into PDA country, but we can't fantasise about running RISC OS natively on next-gen Pentium chips. We need a solution that's achievable and sustainable. Answers on a postcard, please.

We may be a website to you, but to us, you're a reader and a reason why we do all and any of this.

Chris. drobe. sarcasm, remember.
