Im am running VRPC on a PC Laptop for over a year now and haven't touched a real RISC OS machine since (because I'm in America). The machine didn't need a reinstall since and also never crashed completely (VRPC crashed sometimes). I did not have any virus and I run the checker not frequently. I only quickly installed a firewall - that was not very complicated. So I don't really have any problems with the windows machine.

And you know what: I mainly use Oregano 1 for surfing because it just works fine. I will use my RiscPC again and my new Omega computer when I come home in a few weeks. I don't see me using VRPC a lot then except when I need a mobile solution. If a RISC OS Laptop comes out I may purchase that and sell the PC one. I might then buy a desktop PC for programs like Mathematica that are just not available under RISC OS.

What I want to say: I had to use windows for some month now and I did not have many problems with it and I will go back to a native RISC OS machine as soon as I get home. When I use the PC I am just missing so many features. I would really like to save Mathematica graphs as a draw file - but I just can't and so changing small things like line thickness or colour is a real pain using windows and I have no other choice as to live with that but I can't say I really like it. I am writing my Master Thesis right now with Impression and TechWriter where everybody else uses LaTeX - and it just works fine for me.
