Plug and Play Plug and play is what Microsoft aspire to for the entire computing experience. RISCOS Ltd too want users to unpack there new machines, connect, and the machine itself to then configure itself (in an ever watching fashion) to whatever else is around; monitor, printer, network, cameras, TV system etc. Paul Middleton even, half seriously, said (Sunday, Wakefield 2004) that life would be so much easier if users could not get into (and did not need to) ever go into !Boot except maybe occassionally and then only through the provided interface. I'm all for all of this so long as the techies and technical gurus and even those with just a passing interest can get through the protective layer when they want to, easily. Hopefully, this accesibility is an aspect of computing where RISC OS will remains different (and superior to) to M$ Windows.

Unipod Jeepers - I though Unipod was an April Fool - I guess that getting folks to think that was the April Fool. I fell for it.
