So you are using RISC OS 3.71 and 4.02.
Wake up !!
There is almost no need to use 3.71 and or 4.02 because you have a few programs that will work with it.
I 'm using RISC OS from the beginning.
And on my A9Home I can run almost every program I want (with help of Aemulor).
I can also play here with an Iyonix.
Pro and con's for A9Home or Iyonix ?
I can't find them
Both can replace my old RISC PC's.
For me I prefer the A9 because it is small/fast and runs Select.
Other people will choose the Iyonix
So what ? both users still want to use RISC OS and are willing to pay for this platform.
I also use VA-RPC ( it is a nice solution for laptop users/ and today it is a very cheap solution for running RISC OS - I think 95% (ex) RISC OS users do own a WinPC )
Please stop complaining about Iyonix/A9 or whatever.
Let's stick with the RISC PC ------ in 3 years RISC OS will be dead !!!!
