AMS> I'd also point out that compared to several other OSes the GUI appearance of *both* versions of RISC OS look very dated. So given that both look stone age the decider should be technical advanages - particularly the ability to run on new more capabile hardware while at the same as offering users of legacy platforms an option to use code on a *single* OS rather than the forked set up we have at the moment. RO5 offers this RO6 does (IMHO) not.

IMHO RISC OS has always had the dated look, ;-) the granite desktop has been around for years!

I couldn't agree more with your thoughts - technical advantages, esp. those ones which have allowed at lest 12 videos to run simultaneously on the desktop and one of those lip sync'd - aka !Replay

Two forked versions of the same OS - I just wish one would feed the other - fedora / red hat?

However, sadly we'll always have people bleating on about the lack of this and that, rather than its abilities and historically RISC OS has been ahead in some areas for years.

The concept of new hardware is a good one and in times where the polar ice cap IS melting - new low power / high performance systems to play music and watch videos, etc. can't be bad thing!
