VirtualAcorn: Thanks again. I can understand why you've chosen the RO3 banner when entering the site, but wouldn't most ex-Acorn users simply know what they're dealing with when seeing the 'VirtualAcorn' name and logo? This start-up banner is making an amateurish impression, in my humble opinion; It's quite cheesy and besides it's RO Adjust or RO SIX nowadays. But, it's your choice ofcourse! I guess many elderly gentlemen could find it amusing.

I certainly understand you wouldn't be forcing anyone to buy the beta, moreover you make a proper disclaimer, so that's all fine. I guess yesterday I was uncomfortably reminded of how certain things get done more and more in this little market. In the end, finally making clear to the public that there really is a Mac version and it's getting developed is a Good Thing, just please be aware that you're targeting a different kind of audience now with many ex-Acorn (or other interested) users who have not kept up-to-date on RO affairs in many years and are used to different standards. I do hope the Intel version won't take too long, because that's where the focus is at in the Mac market - it's pretty amazing how swift the PPC to Intel transition has gone, both from Apple and from their customers.

I'm sorry if I gave the impression that I was personally willing to redesign your site; that was not my intention, only to suggest it could really help the company's image. There are many excellent site designers around, so perhaps you could make a deal where the designer gets a free copy of the software you're selling? Anyway, have a nice day at Wakefield!
