Not at all.

I've read the articles, and I've not seen what's worth the hefty price tag.

Nobody cares what I think? Oddly enough, I couldn't give a monkeys, though I DO think that perhaps by some strange fluke of quantum mechanics I might have point, and that other people happened to agree, then ROL and CTL *would* listen.

Given the fact that plenty of people have been waxing lyrical about drawing users from other platforms, I raised the not unreasonable point that realistically, that's not going to happen while the prices are where they are.

So tell me, why *aren't* you complaining about the fact that the OS -still- doesn't have any memory protection? Or pre-emptive multitasking? These sorts of fundamental features obviously affect you, and you'd benefit from them, so why not be vocal about them? Given that Drobe is one of the more well-known RISC OS-related news and discussion sites in existence, the chances are that ROL and CTL *would* take notice of a reasonable proportion of people asking for what these days are considered to be basic features.

You might've only read whinging from my comments, but from yours I got "yeah, there's only a few thousand RISC OS users out there, and there's a whole bunch of reasons why, but being vocal about it is just a waste of time because neither ROL, CTL, or Drobe for that matter, care if users have fairly legitimate criticism."
