Unfortunately the small firm who were to be Microdigital Australia went down waiting! Another loss to the RISC OS scene. This was coupled with the politics at a local level. The Govt paid over AU$10million to Microsoft and levied schools whether they had any use for the licences or not. Educational arguments were brushed aside and schools pressured into accepting a S.O.E. Hardly educational! Like every child having to learn to read the same book.
