"No, I didn't say that RISCOS Ltd's business model is not to put our products into new markets. That is your deliberate mis-interpretaion!" I think Rjek was refering to what Paul Stewart said, not you.

"We put a tagline on our new web site to say that it was best viewed by Netsurf, as a clear sign of support for people who may not have heard of Netsurf to give it a try, but you just complained." I haven't had the opportunity to test it on Netsurf, but perhaps given the suposedly imperfect layout it could have been worded differently. I agree that riscos.com should probably be listed on the netsurf website though.

I suspect that many readers broadly appreciate the points you raised here. I'm not sure I buy the 'free everything' cure all approach either, for example.

Whilst back on the (seemingly never ending) subject of ROL and CTL licences, does 'desktop' extend to cover netbooks and other laptop-a-likes? Might netbooks fall outside of your licence?
