Good luck Richard. I'd always hoped that someone would write a definative history on Acorn - I've always found it to be a really interesting story. It's got so many ups and downs, from the high-flying days of receiving the Queen’s Award, 300 active dealerships and promos with Linford Christie and Steve Brackford, to the many crisises, such as the company's near death in 1985 and its eventual dismemberment. Will be a great read I'm sure, and if you're content in Foundation is anything to go by, you're the right man for such a task.

Interesting to see Mr. Hauser has contributed money towards the project. If only he would open his checkbook to RISC OS developers :(
