flypig: The origins of RISC OS and ARM don't reflect the current status, which is why I said what I did. Muddling the glory days of the past with now is unfortunately about as valid as those people who remember using A3000s at school and say that RISC OS is useless, because they are comparing those with whatever they use now (I'm sure we've all met those people).

Following the attempt to drag this back on topic, the controversy is because Archive readers might not be representative of RISC OS users as a whole. If you had enough surveys from different sources, of which it was when, then I suppose you may start getting some reliable statistics about all RISC OS users. A purely Archive survey is fine if they what they are really trying to do is work out what machines to pitch articles at.
