There seems to be plenty of chat on what people should be doing, how they should be doing it and when they should be doing it. The fact is, if you don't like what other people are doing, do what you want yourself or invest in someone else who is doing what you want.

Bob> All I got from your posts was that you no longer use RISC OS because it didn't or doesn't do what you want. If there was another point there, I'm afraid I missed it. You must let us know if your article gets published - not authored on TechWriter though, sadly.

My own opinion is that whilst I did regard RISC OS as a great platform for email (using Messenger Pro in particular), it is now lagging behind other offerings such as Mozilla Thunderbird. A good result for me would be a port of Thunderbird (obviously using the work from the Unix Porting Project) which has had further modifications to suit the RISC OS way of working. Currently the best way to see any possibility of this happening is to support the UPP - something which I believe is becoming more valuable every day.
