"RISC OS developers need to stop writing software that is so fragile to changes in the OS. "

Riiight. Sure. We do it on purpose you know. We're paid so much and sell such vast quantities of RISC OS software that we just knock out any old s***. What a totally moronic statement to make, Martin, really!

Frankly, what's needed is ANY commercial RISC OS developers right now, if RISC OS is going to go anywhere. If things like Beagleboard and A8 are to be the future, then developing applications to suit (using the VFP for example) will be needed. Throw away prettymuch every piece of 3rd party RISC OS software you've got and do you STILL want to try and use RISC OS as your primary platform? How far will you get? Nowhere really. RISC OS needs application developers as much/more than OS developers -- without apps, an OS is worthless. And I don't mean utterly crud applications like Flicker.
