"One thing RISC OS badly needs is users to actually purchase new products. So many comments on forums follow the line 'I haven't upgraded because... ' or 'I still use my 10/12/16 year old RiscPC... and the users actually sound proud of the fact when they announce it. "

As lym as commented, this is absolutely right. However it is not all the user's fault. Surely these days, some 6 years (or more) after RISC OS 4 being available, developers should write software that only supports RO4 or later OS. Or now we have 2 32bit machines available, how about developers only supporting the newer versions of the operating system. Something like this would force users to upgrade both OS and Hardware in order to run the lastest version of their favourite application and encourage new hardware to be developed.
