You seem to have missed what I'm saying - given the recent discussions about people switching from Windows to RISC OS, why is anybody *really* going to switch when it costs several times more than Windows to keep up to date? Idealism is all very nice, and a larger RISC OS user base would be great, but realistically, it's not going to happen unless a lot of rather financially-advantaged people suddenly take an interest.
