jess: Counting the number of major upgrades from RISC OS 3.1 to today's versions would probably move you closer to OS X 10.0 than System 7, I'll admit that - but I was pointing out the age of RO 3.1. System 7 and Win 3.1 came out at around the same time as RO 3.1 and trying to use a 15 year old version to sell an OS is not a good idea. Unless of course the selling point is nostalgia. A user trying out 3.1 and then buying 4.xx or 5.xx would be really disappointed with the lack of progress in the past 15 years.
