a) Who told you I hadn't any experience of the A6? Was it just a figment of my imagination, or was there really an A6 next to my stand at the S.E. Show? Well, John Cartmell was very friendly and happy to talk about it. Anyway, as Chris has already pointed out, this was not a review - I didn't make any critisism about the machine - so your point in irrelevent.

b) I'm sure your customers /are/ very happy. But again, you've completely missed the point. The way the A6, and other machines, are promoted fosters the sort of confusion I've discussed. The A6 is NOT a RISC OS machine.

c) I'm not saying that you "should give away the engineering time" for free. I'm saying that you should perhaps concentrate on things that can benefit the whole community. Stuart, the IYONIX pc and Omega do exist.

d) As it stands now, VVRAM is not available to all Virtual RPC users. If, in the future, it does become available, then that's one step in the right direction. Well done.

If you read the whole article, this was not meant to be a "sensationalised story". I have thanked you for your very successful developments on the old hardware. Now I'd like to see something for the new. But, hey, it's your company.
