arenaman: re: not using RISC OS software because windows is right there. While I don't have an emulator, my Athlon64 WinXP, Dreamweaver, Photoshop and Firefox computer is just a button press away from my Iyonix (no slower really than an alt-tab I suppose) and I use StrongEd, Photodesk and Oregano2 in preference. For people that use RISC OS because they realise it's better than Windows where it matters most - the GUI - the fact that better featured software is available under Windows doesn't really matter. As long as you can get what you need done under RISC OS (and you'll probably get it done faster and with less stress under RISC OS), emulation isn't going to stop people buying and using RISC OS software. You only switch over to Windows software when the equivalent simply doesn't exist under RISC OS.
