Could be why many out of touch (non-RISC OS) people looking at these web sites think that Acorn / RISC OS is dead?

Would there be a high percentage of PC user old web sites in the same situation as the many dead vintage RISC OS sites, or are we just more noticeably unique?

Cybervillage opened in 1995... now that's ten years ago. I wonder how many Windows '95 (or similar era) reference sites are dead and unmaintained? Or should I ask are many people still using Windows '95?

Maybe I shouldn't really be comparing Windows '95 with RISC OS? As they are two very different types of aging cheeses, and from different cheese makers?

RISC OS has aged very well although the numerous stagnant web sites are increasing rapidly, but where do we go next?
