Pity that the surveys didn't include the RISC OS version in use on the Risc PC and VirtualRPC. Considering that for the Drobe survey the number of voters was guessed to be a bit above 400 the statement that half of the Archive readership of some 1200 voted that makes some 600 votes. Perhaps both surveyors could let us in on the number of voters (and be it an approximate one).

Comparing both the online survey of Drobe does list quite a few more modern systems, that is IYONIX pc as well as the A9home. That does invite some thoughts to happen by... - Perhaps users of the newer hardware are more devoted to Internet especially since for IYONIX it is recommended for upgrades; for A9home probably too. - Or can it be that those who parted with the money to buy an IYONIX pc or A9home now can't afford to subscribe to Archive anymore? - Or perhaps due to high shipping cost outside UK the additional IYONIX pc/A9home in the drove survey are mainly outside UK... Pick any of these if you like, or feel free to consider all three of them to just be some wierdo's strange thinking (which is probably correct :-) anyhow).
