I'm not whining - just a suggestion to involve more users.

Talking in terms of "13 years old" and "time to move on" is disingenuous and inappropriate, frankly.

For a start the SA is about 10 years old, RISC OS 4+ less, and more importantly authors /know/ that in terms of compatibility they have to go the extra distance and then some more with RISC OS. Even with special offers of £500 for an Iyonix (not including monitor) it's too expensive to justify for many people. Most people would just get a laptop I imagine.

Furthermore, Castle started manufacturing RiscPC's as the last Acorn computers in 1999, just over 7 years ago and selling them in the region (inc. monitor) for £1000 so please give it a rest with "13 years" at least for the moment.

And as for RComp selling RISCBooks for aroud £900 or more, >70% of the British population must think they're living in cloud cuckoo land!
