I agree with many of the comments here in regarding how nice some of the RISC OS software (still) is compared to other software on other platforms.

Although on RISC OS in some or many ways are getting behind or lacking a few useful features that need attention, abviously a hard battle for such a small number of us in a small part of the world.

Talking about word or text editing etc., one of the BIGGEST features RISC OS lacks that I would find most useful is the "Encoding" ability found in the PC's.

The big plus for RISC OS is the "standard" Vector ability of our computers, while PC's for years are left with their "standard" (what come with the computer - not including extras to buy that is) of Metafiles, Paint and horrible set packs of WordArt that every "Man and his Dog" has and uses.
