Peter, perhaps Axel has flamed the hell out of you or your mates. Maybe if that's the case then one can understand you not respecting him. Whatever. But that doesn't make it necassary or excusable for you to use a public website to ridicule him. Yes I assumed he's innocent - innocent till proven guilty or something similar springs to mind. But in any case I'm not interested in personal petty arguments, that's NOT why I read Drobe, and is the reason I was a bit dismayed when I saw the article. Perhaps people could learn something from the article if it wasn't so smug and smarmy in it's tone. As it stands, I can't see many people reading beyond the first few paragraphs.

The saddest thing about all this is that if you were to remove the smugness, p***-taking and personal vendetta, you'd actually have had a half-decent article about the practicalities (or otherwise) of porting RISC OS to another processor achitecture.

Right. I have work to do.
