Spriteman: What "modern features" are you expecting? There have been various articles on Drobe arguing that some of these would be very difficult or impossible to put into RISC OS (certainly without breaking existing software), and some other things which seem to get called part of the OS on other systems don't really belong there anyway.

What does that leave us? Well, having one standard version of USB in the OS would seem to be a good idea (whichever it is). I'm sure there are plenty of other achievable things other people can think of. Has anyone told ROL what they would like in (or more importantly, have ROL ever asked anyone, instead of just doing whatever they feel like)?
