Grey, sorta gives me that Tombstone feeling.... Has the end which the (VOCAL) minority has been calling for, finally arrived? I guess that might be how you define an optimist or a pessimist!

For me, at times my glass is half empty - but, most of the time it is half full.

Saying this, Chris is one of the many RISCOS (ACORN) heroes and hopefully we'll see success in the platform and for the people who have invested so much into it!

The site is nice and clean, lacking colour. But probably appropriate at this time.

Drobe has been a great read - thank you

Hopefully, the WINTEL market has enjoyed the competition and will learn someday from how ACORN saw things. E.g...?

However, something that currently makes me smile is when I see the current GREEN movement in the world of the x86. I wonder if they've considered removing a few cooling fans, AIRCON units...

Finally, when AMD mentioned that the processor hertz isn't the whole picture in terms of performance... it made me think those roses smell good... GRIN.

Flame retardent suit on!
