I think many are missing the point here about productivity. i'm sure RiscOS is more productive for many because of familiarity and because it is a nice OS. Windows is productive because of the software. It can be a bit slow in mqany instances, like just now I'm on my other machine looking at a montage of 8 90mb 3d images and playing them in realime. Horses for courses. My next machine is going to be linux becaus the software I use is £6,500 on windows for one and 4,500 for another pachage so I'm getting a linuix machine to use free software (open inventor) with a custom gui (revolution) and probably 4+Gb of RAM.

At the end of the day, if it is best for you, then it is the OS to use. I like RiscOS but it just does not have the software I need.
