I rarely contribute to such discussions but the imminent arrival of a working OS release from riscosopen coupled with an open source emulator is such an excellent development that I have to comment.

This argument is just the latest in years of FUD spreading which has held back the OS enormously. I don't believe that commercial RISC OS has ever really been viable since the demise of Acorn.

Anyone spending any money with companies opposing ROOL (even just £5) is potentially bankrolling an opposition to the only real future for the platform, i.e. one that is open source.
