Mripley: "The Man in the street's money is what RISC OS desparately needs to attract."

Of course we're not doing well in the consumer market, but the question is, are we even doing well in any niche markets? Embedded development appears to be keeping the platform afloat, but will that ever generate enough capital to allow the Desktop side to reap the benefits?

My only hope is that now that ROL has completed getting the OS onto 32-bit hardware perhaps they have time to focus on the consumer stuff.
