To VirtualAcorn: Hey, good news indeed!

In reply to VisitorQ: I agree - same here, that is I don't mind the copy protection but I do mind the way registration is done.

In reply to nico: You write "I'm getting a bit fed up with all people moaning about this copy protection while running VRPC on an OS with the *same* type of protection." First of all the moaning was not mainly about the copy protection but the registration procedure which I don't put up with either (thus following your suggestion to not buy it). And there is a very *major* *difference* as for registering! For Windows XP the registration can be postponed for some time, can be done at any time of the day via Internet, can be done during office hours by phone. With VirtualRPC I start the setup, see the key, then have to interrupt to get the key before I can continue. And in case of upgrade/refresh/crash I have to wait for UK office hours to be able to reinstall it - you got to be kidding. Since I use RISC OS for day-by-day things like email etc. I am not into running it in a way that to be able to then read my email so that I use native hardware.
