I agree very much with "DaveW" comments. In education, people love their MS like a car from the salesyard "Honest Harry's 2nd hand faulty Imports" as opposed to a Horseless Carriage from RISC OS with only a few bits and pieces missing. If a few of the bells and whistles are missing, then very few will bother with RO no matter how good the "Plain Jane" RO machine is. This is not my opinion, but a similar daily experience I share with "DaveW" in a school environment. I still think now as I did six months ago, that 2005 WILL be a very good year for RISC OS despite our slow progress and despair.

  • Will Wakefield 2009 see a new graphics card for RISC OS?
    Speculation is mounting that the Vpod, a mysterious new product pre-announced this week, could be a graphics card on a podule for RiscPC-class machines. Well-placed sources have said that the Vpod is not an April Fools joke despite it being hyped up on April 1st by Stuart Tyrrell Developments, which sells the Unipod upgrade and is linked with A9home manufacturer Advantage Six.
