Interesting, thoughtful article. Looking round at my fellow RISC OS users I sometimes wonder whether we do not sometimes overplay our desire to be different, to know best, to out-nerd the rest of the sorry human race ("speak for yourself", "rhubarb", I hear?). It just may be that there is a reason why mavericks (and we are all mavericks, aren't we) go for something like RISC OS. As well as proclaiming our egregiousness, our difference can be an advantage. I refused to believe that I was human when I was small - some still believe me. Still, it is silly to take it seriously.
