tootled: Well, the news has already upset Windoze by causing the computer to crash has it? rage

RISC OS does have a future as a desktop computer, simply because Windoze is everything what so many people do not want. A bit of "modernisation" and a few tweeks and finally a product that has just about everything that M$ has and can do, then a good product will sell itself. With a good RISC OS product on the market, it's going to be Windoze that will need to make huge changes to it's neglected and underdeveloped system to compete with RISC OS. I can't see that happening to the PC world already flooded with an inherited poor design in place. I don't believe RISC OS needs to compete, just sell a good "modernised" product. Once upon a time, people were lashing out to buy an Acorn computer just to get their hands on the !Sibelius music software. Most of these people would have been unaware of how good the Acorn computer that they bought was when they bought !Sibelius .... I was one of those people back in '94/'95.
