"RISC OS is actually far better abstracted than RISC OS 5"

The problem you have here Paul, is that many people for whatever reason don't think it is. One the big reasons for this is that more than a year after the RISC OS 6 release, the only manufacture of a RISC OS based computer has still been unable to release a version of RISC OS 6 for their product. Assuming RISC OS 6 was easier than RO5 to port on to new hardware, surely a version of 6 should have appeared by now?

Perhaps you could direct ROL's resources, for a couple of months, to help get RO6 on the A9home.

"In comparison the ARM NetBooks offer the best option for the future, and there is no reason why we can't produce RISC OS Six for one or more of them, if the RISCOS Ltd shareholders decide that we should go down that route."

Perhaps the RISCOS Ltd shareholders need a reality check! I know you have tried to get them to allow RISCOS Ltd to do other things in the past. Perhaps you could try again. I'm sure if you need help in convincing them, there will be a fair few users who would glady help you make the case to the shareholders.
