"If you are trying to make out that Risc PC owners paid for the A9Home to be developed, then that is untrue." I am not. I know who paid for the A9Home to be developed.

I gave a list of features I believed most users would never use, or even understand. Of course, you can name a handful of ones that are used, that's easy. Nobody's piped up and said "I use this obscure, ill-thought-out feature!", and they're hardly ever mentioned on usenet, the usergroups I attend, on Drobe, Iconbar, IRC, etc etc etc. Or do you seriously think people often use Sun Raster import? How many people, do you think, would rather effort spent on features like Unicode font support than import support for an ancient and esoteric image format?

I say "citation needed" because you make outlandish claims and refuse to detail why you believe them to be true. At least I give examples for which nobody tends to argue with. And when you /do/ link to another page, most of them time it says the opposite. Just like tlsa said, although you continue to ignore him.
