Flypig: The USB Pen Drive device sounds like or similar to the USB Jetflash pen type device that I have. Does the Iyonixs have special software to read the pen device that you have or can the Iyonixs read any external storage device plugged into the USB? So your generlised opinion about the difference with Iyonixs is that there needs to be a number of hardware/software additions purchased to get RO 4 or RO3 up to the Iyonixs feature level (if that is possible) ? One thing Iyonixs cannot do is MPEG, but maybe soon I hope! Martin: I strongly agree that we do tend to forget the age difference of RO3 & RO4 when we compare to XP Windows. My Risc PC 600 ('94) with RO4 should be realistcally compared to Windows '98 or even less. As for anyone using Windows because of your employer, either change boss or job if you cannot use your choice. I use all RISC OS in my school music department when I started her 9 years ago because I said so, or look for another music specialist teacher (my boss imported me from Melbourne to Auckland and I accepted on those terms). Do people get AppleMac and/or PC choices in their jobs, wouldn't a Mac user go for a Mac environment job? Maybe RISC OS users should convice their employer to at least be able to use one RiscOS machine (to show off) . Regards, Steve ;-)
