In reply to flibble, you're right, I was looking at turnover, not profit, my mistake.

In reply to stevef, my spelling is not getting any better is it? :-)

I assure you it's not spite, it's just wanting my OS to look pretty :-) I'm not talking about a wholesale throwing out of all design work in RISC OS, I'm just talking about looking at certain asthetic parts of the OS with a critical eye and thinking "can we do better than this?".

I could show credible alternatives in terms of other OS logos, but if we're talking about actually doing a new logo myself, then unfortunately, I'm just not capable.

Well, I've said my piece, and I really don't want to upset anyone by criticising their work, I just think the visual appearance of a desktop OS is really, really important, and if we can improve it, we should.
