*mripley* in my views has some very strong points that are in the important areas to address as I have commented in recent articles. At school, in the public eyes and among friends who stop for a moment to hear and see what such awesome computer I have (RISC OS) are not amused by bells and whistles boasted about our machines, but instead have deaf ears and not really interested because of the lack of what I call the "Basics" enjoyed on Windows..... (DVD, Multimedia, full internet support, some common basic foreign language font -encoding I mean - ....etc. etc). Yes I understand that the bug fixes and many other features alike may be important to stabilize and fine tune our machines to a level even further beyond the PC capability, but the would be PC potential buyer don't really want these features first - otherwise they would have bought a RISC OS if they thought stability and fine tuning was more important than feature... But Yep! In a number of ways I am not totally correct, because I do every week hear the PC users at my school complain about those darn computers!! I correct their comments when I reply, "Computers, which computers? You mean those Microsoft ones!!! My computers are O.K. 'cause they're NOT one of them 'M es sy' (pronounced eM ess see) M.S. ones. I am quite sure if RISC OS computers (or who ever of us users) managed to develop and we had most of these feature, I think that a few of the teachers at my school would be willing to dump their PC to be rid of their frustration. What feedback do you get from school/work mate PC users who have seen RISC OS in action? Maybe we should be discussing and looking at PC User comments out of interest instead of all just our comments. Just a thought! Cheers, Steve.
