The difference is that Microsoft were not charging people vast sums of money for Vista for 3 years running before its eventual release so you really can't compare the two situations. None of changes the past situation that RISC OS Ltd have taken peoples money or been asking for money for a long time and given nothing but promises and demos in return. We have been told that a new release is almost ready (and in fairness, it probably is) but it is still only words on a page until it actually happens, which is all it has been for some time.
