Schools are just a microcosm of the wider world. My company has just rolled out a new MIS (OK, that's Management Information System in plain English): it's browser based - RISC OS browsers can't get near it. I used to be able to log onto my company's internal email server remotely using my Kinetic, but now I can't: the IE5.5 option has been disabled in favour of IE6. Internet banking site X used to work, now it doesn't. And so the world moves on, but Oregano2 sadly does not. If there is some insurmountable reason, like the cost of the relevant licenses, or development, why we cannot /ever/ expect Flash or up to date JS, or a modern browser on our platform, personally I would rather know sooner than later; at least I could then make rational decisions about how to shape my computing activities in future.
