No, I missed nothing.

All I read was "Whaa whaa whaa whaa. I'm too lazy to read the n+1 Select articles on Drobe and other portals to find out what it really provides... whaa whaa whaa.. RISC OS is too expensive... whaa whaa whaaa."

Sorry pal, no one cares about what you think. Whinging comments like yours is a waste of my time and the server harddisc space storing them. What will whinging solve? Will the companies involved see your personal comments on this forum and think, "Well, actually, he's got a point". Do you think ROL and CTL charge extra because they can get away with it?

There's what 3, no, 4 thousand users left? Is bitching that the OS is more expensive than an OS used by 300, no 400 million people? We're all very acutely aware of the limitations and restrictions placed on ROS but we get on with using the damn OS and enjoying it.

You're still on 3.7? Did you get 3.7 with your SA RPC? So what you're telling me is, tou've not upgraded since you bought your SA RPC in 1997? That's almost 7 years ago. You've not invested in ROS since then? And now you've got the sudden right to start complaining about the woes of upgrading?

What have I done today? I've been coding ROS software. It's getting there but at the moment, it's exploding because it's accidentally fiddling with some OS workspace memory - but I'll iron that bug out tonight. Do you see me whinging about lack of full memory protection? Do you see me stop and wonder about the costs and how Windows is apparently oh so much better?

No. Now, I don't want to rant again. I'm going to watch Hackers on Ch4 with a beer and calm down.

Good night.

Chris.
