"Bob"

"Connectivity with whatever you want is the problem, if the manufactueres just write Windows drivers everyone else is screwed, if however 30% of users run Not Windows"

Looking at the stats from our Village Hall web site the numbers are 95% windows, 2.9% Mac , 0.4% Linux. I am sure there more Mac's and Linux users out there but not so much in the general run of the mill public.

According to a article on Icon Bar about the Wakefield show, Paul Middleton estimated the Risc OS market as between 3-4K. I guess that includes VRPC so I doubt Risc OS machines would register on anybodies scale.
