Interesting article. I've followed the debates and complaints surrounding Qercus in the newsgroups, and have been very put off (in fact, put off the entire RISC OS scene) by the childish, pedantic and cynical moaning that goes on there. The feeling you get from the grumblings, constant one-up-manship and point scoring in c.s.a.m is that these people are not focused on bettering RISC OS and for those of them involved commercially, presenting a professional face. This lack of professionalism does not make one expect them capable of producing a quality product, and thus does not make one inclined to open their wallet. It's a pleasant suprise to read such a glowing review but I must plead with certain posters to the newsgroup (and i'm talking generally here), there are probably a lot of people (like me) who read the postings but don't post, that are half-involved with RISC OS but don't routinely spend as much as we could. Make it easier for us.
