The complaint about leadership is not new. I expresssed it in September 2001 (Acorn User Nov 2001). In retrospect my specific criticism was unfounded (but Paul kindly didn't object) but the general criticism was valid. Putting that right now - or any time in the last three years - is probably out of the question.
A sense of direction is a different matter and that has been given by someone who, until recently, was effectively anonymous. A sense of direction needs a view of the future and a belief that we had an operating system that could be developed for the future. We have been given such a view. Over the next 12 months or so we will see how many people buy into it.
