arenaman:

you're missing the point.

RISC OS is a *minority* or *niche* OS

That means that some things just don't work - modern flash for instance (although that may be changing soon :-) )

When using RISC OS you *have* to be realistic.

I have no problem with this.

I feel sorry for the RiscPC users because they can't use Firefox2v2 - but there will be sound technical reasons for this.

RISC OS is still alive which I am really grateful for as I am slightly biased ;-)

I love RISC OS but I am realistic to accept that the developments for it are made by a few people.

When I get home from work where I *have* to use the dreaded M$ it is a nice relief :-)
