Just because Microsoft can't do something properly, that doesn't mean it isn't worth doing!

Also, to be fair, you'll find that programs that work perfectly under NT-based Windows (NT, 2000 and XP) can lock the non-preemptive DOS-based Windows (including 9x) into doing a single job for hours on end.

What Risc-OS really needs is multiple processor support! :) (Seriously, though - no one except us wants arm chips that run at multi-gigahertz speeds, so multiple processors is a vital step forwards.)
