Quite disturbing news about the A9home. People's hard-discs are becoming corrupted, losing access to valuable data in the process. It can be fixed by DiscKnight, but what if a user doesn't happen to own DiscKnight? Is there any other way to provide details of the problem to CJE ?

It seems the only thing Advantage 6 is doing, is bringing RISC OS 6 to the A9home. So, that would fix it, then? How much would the upgrade cost, since the A9home's OS already benefited from Select subscribers' investments without subscribers getting any discounts when buying it?

The little machine is quite nice in itself (i.e. form factor), but this recent development shows yet another area where the OS is not finished. The machine's been on general (public) sale since Wakefield 2006 and it seems it's been shipping with the same version of RISC OS since, namely 4.42. Many users have been asking for an OS update to get a 100% functional computer. I'm sorry if this sounds too negative, but these problems concerning Advantage 6 and RISCOS Ltd should not be rewarded with silence.
