Everyone seems to be overlooking the obvious regarding RiscPC's - they are pretty much the oldest machines that are usable today (i.e. can run RO 3.6-4.39 at a reasonable speed).
They sold very well back in the Acorn days, and people won't have chucked them out, or else people would have bought them cheap 2nd hand. I expect there were many more RiscPC's sold than Iyonixes, so what's the surprise? Iyonixes are new, but expensive and don't have 100% compatibility.
I'm also not at all surprised that VARPC has sold more than the Iyonix - it can run Select, it's generally faster, you can have it in laptop form and it only costs 120ukp (I expect most of us already have a suitable Windows PC).
What should be NetSurf's priority? Development work on the open source NetSurf web browser project will once again be funded by Google as part of the internet giant's Summer of Code scheme. NetSurf has been accepted into this year's GSoC, which pays students to develop open source software during their holiday, under the guidance of a mentor. This year it's hoped budding engineers, who must first successfully apply for a place to work on the browser, will work on various improvements. What do you think the NetSurf team should be focusing development on? 29 comments, latest by adh1003 on 29/4/09 6:40PM. Published: 22 Mar 2009
