Why is the RISC PC still popular?

I would say it's because with the things that RISC OS excels at (email and website design for example) a Risc PC does well. The things that RISC OS does not do so well (web browsing for example), an Iyonix is far better than a Risc PC, but still poor in comparison to a recent Mac or (properly working) PC.

So someone with a Risc PC and space for two machines but money for only one, buying a Mac could easily be more productive than buying an Iyonix.

That is why support shouldn't be dropped.
