Very nice article Peter !

The first time I heard mention of the RISC PC I was bowled over, remember we were coming from a time when the PC-esque A5000 was the "best" Acorn had to offer... and then the RPC (what a shock to the system that was).

It succeeded in no small part to good engineering, expandibility and originality. It was also helped in no small way by the fact that (in those days) people weren't so blinkered as to think the "PC" was the only way to go.

It's a real pity that Acorns "marketing" and "business savvy" didn't quite match the engineering otherwise things might have *not* stagnated for so long (but hey we could dwell on might of beens forever....), best thing that can be said is "happy birthday RISC PC"
