"Acorn tried to combat falling sales by launching the high-powered Archimedes in 1987 but this also floundered because of lack of software."

I'm getting pretty sick of the way a lot of people just dismiss 10 years of Acorn history like this. Even ignoring everything else, it dominated education - that's hardly a faliure. It just comes across as a lack of research.
