In reply to hEgelia: You are quite right, people want RISC OS on their machine for some feature/app/user experience that they cannot get without RISC OS. As regards to browsers etc I agree. If you have a PC running VirtualAcorn then you can easily use a Windows browser. However, and much to my initial surprise, a high percentage of users actually want to perform some (or all) of their browsing from within RISC OS. That's why VirtualAcorn sponsored the original port of Firefox, because users wanted Firefox on VirtualAcorn.
