mripley: Most of those things you say you're missing aren't operating system components anyway, so they aren't lacks in RISC OS (although since they are in using a RISC OS system, then it crudely approximates to the same thing). As for the OS itself, I fail to see how the GUI is tired. The last time I looked at an Apple GUI (maybe a three or four year old version, admittedly), it looked pretty, but I can't see where it stood out as actually being more pleasant to use. Connectivity with mobile phones? Yawn. If it stopped every mobile phone from working within a hundred mile radius then you'd have a computer I'd like. I like mobile phones less than I like Bill Gates and the Lake District National Park Authority put together.
