I was surprised to see that VA still comes in two flavours; either with RISC OS 4 or with RISC OS Adjust (4.39): I'd have thought that it would be much simpler all round (for VA itself and for potential customers) to focus on VA Adjust. Certainly, my advice to anyone going down the VA route would be to forget what's old and in the past, and get the Adjust version.

I'm getting into Adjust now and the improvements to Edit, Draw and Paint (compaired to RISC OS 4) are excellent: the whole package is now much more consistent in the way it works, quite aside from all the extra features.

On a 'true' RiscPC, the ROMs are much better than the softloading select if you do the sort of experimentation I do with others software that frequently "hangs" the machine: so much faster to get going again from a restart.
