Any chance of seeing a demo version of Vantage? 30 day trial, watermarking or whatever. I'd buy a lot more software for RISCOS if I could have a go of it, and see if it met my needs, but there is so much software with no demo version, Artworks (although I took the risk and bought that.), Vantage, PhotoDesk, Compo (there doesn't appear to be a 32bit demo.) and loads more. I'd love to do more design work on my Iyonix but I can't keep on buying software on the off-chance it does what I need. Most of the packages I've mentioned are pretty pricey as well. I think for the market to grow, developers need to wise up a bit, we need demo versions of all software (especially the expensive stuff), and online ordering (Typing in credit card details and waiting for postal delivery isn't good enough, people want instant gratification.)
