I hope that Castle, Tematic, ROD, STD & Co. keep going with their embedded development and take RISC OS into some niche markets. It is perhaps too bigger step commercially to expect to take RISC OS straight back into the classrooom or the office, but with some revenue generated from industrial-type development, it should help take us in the right direction.
I'm also hoping for some progress on the multimedia front. When Cino is completed it will be great to see a decent sound card available; I would like to see an up-to-date music notation package, I would dearly like some sound engineering and/or video editing related software (it has been a long time since any has come about), and I also wish for more of the great work which is going into video and audio players for RO. It is also positive that some new DTP software updates are on the way; it was an area where RISC OS was once very strong and it would be nice for it to make up some lost ground.
