Chris, thanks for an excellent article. It shows that RISC OS users aren't the only people facing the sorts of challenges a platform with a small user base has.
I'm sure there are things that both RISC OS and Amiga communities can learn from each other. Both have small but insanely loyal group of followers and a strong desire to keep their respective systems alive and kicking.
Just a thought, wouldn't it be nice to send out an invitation to Amiga users groups to attend upcoming RISC OS events like Wakefield. The members of there groups have similar interests and it would be a good opportunity to swap ideas and show off some of the great work being done in the RISC OS scene.
