Well said.

Could the circumstances that made the BBC Micro so successful ever return in a way that benefits RISC OS hardware and/or software? i.e. government and other public bodies see oncoming revolution and put up money to meet the perceived need as was the case with government cash for schools and the BBC with their National Computer Literacy project.

Now there's an idea for a Drobe article, one that would need a fair bit of research or knowledge of the IT industry.

Given the heaps unpon heaps of opinion and self-appointed experts (genuine or not) on Acorn Usenet, I can't believe there are so few think-tank style features around. Like, advocating as an open letter or opinion piece what RISC OS Ltd, Castle "should do" or what "should be done" or at least "what it would take to achieve x,y,z".
