On Multi-page ArtWorks 2.7 now available:

Andrew Rawnsley. It is not a good advert for the platform selling severely deficient software such as WebsterXL for exorbitant cost.

On Castle and ROS Open reveal plans for 2007:

The hardware that RISC OS runs on is boring. It is slow and out of date. A port to a different architecture (x86) would open up access to faster, cheaper, hardware and renew interest in developing support for much needed features like DVD playback.

On VirtualAcorn expand emulator range:

in reply to nico:

The point is if it becomes apparent to VirtualAcorn that enough people won't buy the product due to the copy protection maybe they will tone it down a bit.

When activating my legal copy of Windows XP I've never had to phone Microsoft even when I've changed hardware around a lot. Also it is unlikely that Microsoft will disappear overnight leaving me with no way to activate the software. There is also the point I can defer activation to a time that suits me.

I don't think the same can be said of VirtualAcorn's products.

On VirtualAcorn expand emulator range:

I would like to buy a copy of VirtualRPC-AdjustSA but I won't until the copy protection is removed or changed to a more acceptable method.
