govind:

as regards Sibelius on CD: Unfortunately, due to the nature of the copy protection, this is pretty much unfeasible. But hey, that's the beauty of floppy installation: you can write back to the disc, getting rid of the need for ridiculous keycodes and registration files.

Also, you'd be putting 1.6MB of data on a CD (well, nearer 5MB for all three discs, but the remark stands): What a waste! Unless they were to include the Opus library as well... I digress. Sib7 on CD can't feasibly happen.

  • Will Wakefield 2009 see a new graphics card for RISC OS?
    Speculation is mounting that the Vpod, a mysterious new product pre-announced this week, could be a graphics card on a podule for RiscPC-class machines. Well-placed sources have said that the Vpod is not an April Fools joke despite it being hyped up on April 1st by Stuart Tyrrell Developments, which sells the Unipod upgrade and is linked with A9home manufacturer Advantage Six.
