Since when was having numbers in your company name and the names of all your products a good idea?

It's so confusing. A6 this, A9 that, A5, A75. Which genius is doing their marketing? Even I, who is reasonably in touch with what's going on in the RISC OS market, am confused by it all. I find myself looking at their web site to check which name I should be using to refer to the right product. God knows what it must be like for a complete novice.

No doubt someone will pop along in a moment and tell me it's a "logical" naming scheme.
