In reply to the odd one:

1. I'm happy Martin offers the enhanced Renderer - does save me the trouble to opt for bitmaps when using transparency!

2. As for "In my experience people leave the market because there is nothing to buy" I think you should add that it does help if the things on offer are ready there to have and not just announced to happen by some time!

3. As for "It is possible that the abundance of free software is harming the RISC OS platform": I think it is important to have both, commercial and free software so that you don't have to buy everything but for pieces of software I use regularly and I want to use I'm happy to have some committed company looking into them and thus me paying for them. I did have hassles with free software the odd time due to too much delay in upgrading to offer needed features or no update to 32 bit at all.
