To bucksboy: I disagree to your speed statement! Some things are faster on new Windows PC some are faster on the IYONIX pc - it all depends on what you do with the system!!!

To imj: That mixing up is no surprise since nowadays you get Windows with the built-in Browser... and MSOffice is more of a operating system enhancement to some users than an application ;-)

To Gulli: Perhaps Acorn indeed believed that quality sells - well it does if a) the potential customer knows, b) the price is o.k, and c) it is *not* a computer product. The past proves over and over that in computer things quality often does not survive but marketing and dumping prices do the trick.
