davidb, RK: I'm not really interested in dicussions about intangible things like the "Acorn throne", and nor am I really interested in Acorn's failings in their last years, since this has long since been discussed to death.

Every RISC OS company has products that never made it to market, whoopy. The relevant parts are that Acorn had a track record of producing many products, even if some fell through the net, although that isn't particularly relevant to the RiscPC, for reasons I've already stated.

On the contrary, as I keep saying, MD has no such record of delivery of upgrades, so it's no good waving around promised upgrades to the machine, and saying the machine is upgradable, when it clearly isn't for the simple reason that upgrades currently don't exist.
