What on earth do you expect?

RISC OS desktop users are enthusiasts and therefore are likely to be opinionated.

Please also note that it is the same few people who comment on drobe, 100 users (& ex users :-( ) maximum, out of a few thousand others out there.

RISC OS isn't fragmented really - there's a long tradition of coders going their own way here (zap vs StrongED... ;-) )

Having Firefox is a real filip for the platform - when I show others screenshots & explain the iconbar I get "you've got a firefox port? - wow!"

Oh and if you go apple - can you email the people who are writing the software and get a personal helpful reply?
