Oh, and for the record, I didn't buy my A7k+ in 1997. It was relatively recently purchased. Oddly enough, I bought it because I'm a developer, an enthusiast, and have an interest in RISC OS, the platform, and its future development. I first saw the Archimedes several (well, quite a few now) years ago, but haven't been in a position to buy a machine of my own until recently - though I've been following developments for a while now.

I'm not going to claim I've "switched" to RISC OS, though there's a lot I like about it and an awful lot I can, and have been using it for. I am, however, someone who's recently bought into the platform to find it has a community that doesn't respond at all well to criticism of the OS, justified or otherwise.
