OliverB: those schisters promote RISC OS? What are you on? They are a box shifting outfit flogging WINDOWS PCs, how on earth could any RISC OS company partner with that, even if faux-ACL weren't doing everything to remove all association of RISC OS with the real Acorn and to deny it still exists.

Col1: Our only defence is not slagging off the competitiion but defending our legacy and reputation from being misappropriated by a fly by night opportunist fraudlently passing themselves off as Acorn. They are the ones going to schools claiming Acorn has relaunched, reminding them of the quality and low running costs of past generations of real Acorn systems and then passing off their car boot sale quality XP laptops as more of the same - fraud.
