SimonC>Well we *do* know that 90% of them *did not* reply to either survey - how does that grab you. If they were ardently interested in RISC OS I would have expected there to be a somewhat higher level of response. A larger proportion of Iyonix and RPC users did (A9 was too new to figure in the Archive survey)

The possible explanation for a relative pausity of VA users in the surveys are:

1// They Don't subscribe to Archive so could not participate in that survey 2// They by a vast majority don't answer surveys on-line for Drobe 3// They use the PC and don't really bother at all/or much with RISC OS. 4// They gave up on computers as a bad idea and won't touch one ever again....

On the balance of probability and given the low level of response the most likely one is 3.
