Rob fails to appreciate that, just because everything cannot possibly be perfect, he must go around describing everything as bad - and gets nasty when people contradict him. There are bad things around in the RISC OS market (apart from Rob's comments, that is) but they are generally appreciated or ignored. What is wrong with the market are doom-mongers like Rob making everyone depressed - and the standard of commentary here, in newsgroups - and even in magazines - might well improve if we didn't have to waste time countering negative comments from the likes of Greg Harris, Rob, and others. In a world that lives by hyping every third-rate product it is stupid to highlight the deficiencies of RISC OS when we are well aware of them - but often overlook the benefits. Mike is right - the balance is important, but people are criticised for making balanced comments. That's not right.
