There is only half a pint in the glass - whether you see it as half full or half empty is a matter of perspective. People still use RISCOS because it was an elegant tool to workwith for many things.

As regards the speed of development, Microsoft Vista is years late (and has had to be heavily cut down) so money is not necessarily the only problem in IT. Is the water really any better in Windows, Linux or Mac land?

The Browser is a big issue as is the lack of multi-media support. Richard Brown was there and talking about how O3 was progressing and the Netsurf developers were there taking details on any sites which don't work and talking about possible plans once Netsurf 1.0 is released.

There was new blood at the Show with the RISCOS now magazine aiming to target new markets, and Louie saying how nice personally to rediscover RISCOS after several years.
