mrchocky: I did say Acorn and Psion. Although your answer amused me, Psion has pretty much divested itself of its OS business and is no longer making consumer PDAs - in some ways resembling Acorn's licensing of the OS to ROL and getting out of the desktop market. Any consumer models available from either are now rather long in the tooth and no longer manufactured.
It was also to illustrate the point that, once upon a time, I was rather keen to "buy British". Neither company could now provide me with a new model. I feel somewhat cautious about buying British again lest the same fate befall the new one.
