AFT: It works, if there's a track record of the promises being met, and is highly damaging if they are not. Hence the reluctance with people giving money to ROL any more, yet quite a few people stumped up cash in advance for Firefox.

simo: Sadly that looks all too true (about niche to dead). If there's a way out of it I can't see it - too much money would be needed to stop the rot than could conceivably be made, unless someone big takes a positive interest in RISC OS (which I think would be very unlikely).
