Mavhc> As much as I'd like to believe ROL made 180000 I doubt they got that much. Many of the copies sold may have been VA5000 - which as it was based on RO3.1 which *magically* became available (from where we know not) - and about which ROL objected - I doubt from the noise at the time that ROL got a penny from that version.

The later versions of VA (VARPC-SE and so on) *did* include ligit ROL Licensed version of RISC OS so *would* have contributed towards ROL's balance sheet. It would be helpful to know what *proportion* of the VA users used VA5000 compared to those using the later (ROL licensed) variants - perhaps the much vaunted Drobe survey will reveal all (drum roll - cue Chris Williams (opens envelope) and the winner is.... ;) )
