In reply to Peter Naulls (mrchocky)

I think Martin's point is that if something doesn't work, it is much easier to fix if one has direct access to the system. And I think this is true. The alternative for most RISC OS developers would be to have a beta tester with that machine try out iterations and correspond via email. Which is unwieldy at best.

Secondly bear in mind that a significant proportion, perhaps most RISC OS apps are written by what you term novice programmers.

Finally, I think it is fair to say that most programs have bugs, and it is likely that a large proportion of the "Well it works on my machine" variety.

So anyway, this table will be really useful.
