Although this is a sad article meaning the end of an era, it is not really without our (the platform's developers) fault. If enough money had been pumped into RISC OS earlier on (1998 and on) then perhapps we would have the compatibility needed to ensure a secure future, as is, XP has won out.
So now its time to focus on the remaining areas availible to the platform, and to look for new ones. (I still believe that if RISC OS had a strong Video Editing Suit, and audio editing suite, it would sell to the likes of Pinnacle)
Lets look to the future! And keep up the main areas of development (Video Players, Business areas like e-mail ect)!
