Hello dgs, While it would not be a proper thread on a RISC OS forum without somebody commenting on someone else's grammar, spelling or mis-capitilisation of "RISC OS", I genuinely don't see why my grammatical errors make me any less able to comment on design work. One can appreciate the Apple logo without being able to speak, read or write in any language, so I don't really understand your point.

I have also never claimed to be a design guru, I'll be the first to admit that I am useless at design or art, truly useless. This is why I pay someone else to do it for me, in the same way that right this very moment, I'm paying someone to fit a bathroom for me.

And before someone says that RISC OS companies cannot afford to pay for design work, I'll point out that looking at ROL's accounts shows that they make A LOT more money than I do out of software. Also, when you're in a market in which you have to at least *pretend* you're competing with lots of professionally run companies, you can't afford *not* to pay for good design work.

And finally, I'm not lecturing anyone, merely passing comment in a forum, the same way you are.
