Less than £100,000? Per year? Judging by my own very small part of the RISC OS economy, I would be truly astonished if you are not totally and completely underestimating the size of the RISC OS market. Now try to calculate a likely number for the turnover of ROL, VA, R-Comp, CJE, MW-Software...

Overall however, I agree that money will not solve RISC OS' problems. But it helps. Sponsoring part-time developers and sponsoring hardware/software for developers helps accelerating/enabling development.

And that is the key really: we need more stuff that "enables" and motivates developers. Availability of new, fast, cheap hardware is a great enabler, and a great motivation. Availability of a competent toolchain is also a great enabler. And, of course, source availability of the OS.
