The tale of two stories? M$ and DOS Iyonixs and RISC OS How does the story of M$ and it's DOS system go? As I understand over the years, the DOS idea was not dumped just to please past M$ users. Is this correct to say that M$ may have had a more appealing system if it did dump DOS ages ago? So are we recreating M$ history by hanging on to RISC OS? - Just to please past owners and users of the that system? I personally have a RISC OS 4 and 3.7 machines and would like "something" to leap forward into development whichever system it may be RO4 or RO5. It appears in my views that "some" (but could be "many") Acorn and mid 90's RISC OS successors don't like to spend much money on computers. The problem you get (like me) when these darn machines last too long!!! If Castle makes this "Quantum Leap" in development, I'm speeding up my savings for an Iyonixs too. All the same, most of the conflicting opinions I read are still of interest and should be evaluated. I registered with the Merlin Site to get my 2 New Zealand dollars worth of say (Is NZ$2 worth much in £pounds??) Cheers, Steve.
