I can see people's points about APDL losing upgrade sales, which is pretty much the point of them buying all these ancient titles lately, but to me, if the author of this patch wasn't charging for it, then it wasn't that much work, so it would be a bit of a cheek to charge for it.

I remember with the RO4 upgrades, you at least got some new features and other bug fixes included. Just making it work on the new OS is more of a free bug fix to me, than a chargeable upgrade.

And have APDL already spent money of doing this 32-bitting themselves?

And whoever said Sibelius was better on RISC OS must have been smoking crack. A friend of mine who is heavily into music scoring (and big Acorn advocate) actually ditched Sib7 and Acorn when he saw the far superior PC version.

Oh and I write software for a living too ;)
