He, he. That is about as negative a spin as you could hope to put on the possibility of RISC OS 5 for the RiscPC.

A slightly more balanced view would be:

* It's a big upgrade for anyone running RISC OS 4.02 or below * It's fully 32 bit so the 28 MB application slot limit is removed * Old 26-bit applications can be run with Aemulor (which is free) * Most software is 32 bit now anyway * You can have the same OS across your RiscPC and IYONIX (in the case where you own both) * It's free and future updates are free * If you're a programmer and find a bug, you can get at the source code and fix it yourself * There is a bugs database and active forum at www.riscosopen.org where you can discuss any issues if you want

Apart from that though, it's hard to see why users would want it.
