AMS: "Is this really likely ? Really ?" I don't see why not - ever heard of "try before you buy"? In any case, my comment was rhetorical - the point I was trying to get across is that it is far from clear exactly what impact VA has had on native hardware sales.

"Then at some point they say - nah, why boot VARPC at all - save the time - just run Word/Excel/Powerpoint - game set and match Microsoft." I don't understand your point. Surely if using MSOffice is best for some individual user then that's what they should do, by definition?

In any case, all this talk of hardware leaves me cold. The software is what interests me - and it seems likely, to me, that VA has benefited the RISC OS software scene.
