Why is everyone else so /for/ it? It's a bitter disappointment the way the whole fiasco has been handled. Not least the questionable roots of the operating system and the fact they're hurling everyone back to a crapulent RISC OS 3.7-alike system. The mad notions of "No Dynamic Areas" and soforth just go to further my opinion that it's not any future for RISC OS that I think is sane or have an interest in. There's other personal reasons, too. Everyone has a right to their opinion. Over all, RISC OS has completely lost its appeal for me due to all the ridiculous infighting an non-cooperation between folk (Castle, ROL, Microdicital, Windfall, Simtec, etc) -- a tiny market ripped apart by people who should know a lot better. Finally - nobody actually wants new RISC OS software anyway it seems. Certainly nobody seems prepared to pay for anything and the vocal disdain of RISC OS Select by many folk prove there's no point working for/with such a crackpot inbred indignant vicious set of folk any more. It's a shame, but that's the plain facts. I've found better things to do with my life than be hurt, disappointed and abused by this scene. The only reason I continue to comment is that good friends still battle on with it, and I support my friends.
