I've still got my fingers crossed for ROLF, despite it's "erratic" progress. The cold hard fact of my work is that I need to use OpenOffice on a laptop. Try doing that using RISC OS.

I'd love to stick with pure RISC OS...despite the ridicule of techies who mock it's under-hood gubbins...and the ridicule of plebs who freak out if the backdrop on their Windows machines gets changed when they're not looking.

To be perfectly frank RISC OS is the only GUI I have ever liked, and the only one that I've gone through an entire session without cursing. ROX doesn't cut it either.

OK ROLF is one heck of a long shot for my hopes but one day.... {sigh}
