James: Richard is writing a book about what actually happened, not how illinformed you beleive most Americans to be, no matter how justified. If no one had heared of Acorn, why do you think both Microsoft and Intel have flocked to its birthplace in Cambridge to establish "research centres", if not to ensure our native talent now is bleed dry in their corporations, rather than forming independant British companies like Acorn. Yes I have a very British view of the computer industry, because despite 60 years of US propaganda, the fact remains we invented the modern electronic computer, and the story since is then has been American claiming to invent inferior copies of things we've had lying around in cupboards for years.
