A3000, A3010, A5000, A7000, RiscPC to mention a few of the machines that Acorn produced, along with necessary changes to RISC OS.

Acorn machines were at one point far ahead of rivals in terms of speed and capability.

Compare to what happened (or mor accurately, didn't happen) whilst RISCOS Ltd 'developed' the OS, and clearly the Acorn days were the glory days. Just because Acorn stopped making desktop computers and then disappeared doesn't mean the time before this was bad, does it?
