jms: "amused that RAM Discs are seen as revolutionary by the Amiga team. "

Which rather reinforces the point Chris is making in the article - easy to use RAM filing systems have been a feature of RISC OS since RO2, way back in the 1980s. But if you mention that to a typical MS or Mac user, they'll just say "what's a RAMdisc?". A site that lists (and explains) all the basic features of RISC OS that we take for granted would be no bad thing.

Perhaps the drobe team, who own riscos.org.uk, might transform it from a rather bland redirection page into something suitable?
