mavhc Seems like a snip at ukp150 having spent something like ukp500 in the last few years on copies of RO4 and Select subs to see very little benefit to me personally (from my individual standpoint).

Only a couple of years ago there was much talk (especially in the RISC OS community) about how MS were integrating all sorts of things into their 'operating system' that were previously provided by third parties, the allegations being that this was killing competition in the Windows apps market.

It is ironic that people seem to think now that integrating the functionality previously provided by third party add ons, is how an OS should be built, work and be marketed.

However there will always be a need for patches to make an OS/GUI work the way users want as no OS /GUI can satisfy all the needs and wants of all of the users.
