SimonC: If you do something on Windows, MacOS or Linux then you write the various code you need. If you do something on RISC OS you first have to patch in the missing OS functionality. This is what killed RISC OS, and it's the reason I do most of my commercial programming on Windows. Selling software to 100% of the RISC OS market at £100 would bring less income (4,000 * £100 = £400,000) than selling to 1% of the Windows market (assuming a computer is binned after 3 years) for 10p (150,000,000 * 3 * 0.01 * £0.10 = £450,000.)
