His comment about facelifting Risc OS and the new "purely cosmetic features" is targetted at two entirely different groups of people (I very strongly suspect), not the same group as implied by his "can't win" comment. Those who complained about cosmetic features were those expecting more from a new OS release i.e. 32-bit, HAL etc. The other group (like myself) recognise that compared to other OS's Risc OS needs a serious uplift. The welcome cosmetic features merely updated the OS from a 1980's look to a 1990's look. We have a decade and half of catch up to go yet if we wish to attract new users.
