About me:Heh. Apparently I don't "moderate comments correctly". The idea that some automatic system could possibly make such a judgement is, frankly, ludicrous, but hey - that's drobe for you!

On R-Comp unveils new PDF authoring package:

arawnsley:"Plus, web sales (even secure) account for, what, virtually NONE of business in the RISC OS market any more"

Um, yeah but there's a bit of a catch22 - if you don't have a half decent website (as you don't) it's hardly surprising that you don't get much business through it :( I bet someone like mwsoftware have a different story to tell.

hzn: I don't think you should be recommending "security by obscurity" as a solution. :(

On Apple Mac VirtualRiscPC leaves beta:

This is good news :) I hope VA will now be able to devote some development time to fixing some of the problems in the Windows version of VRPC.

On Google funding offered to NetSurf project:

jmb: I hope that you'll be pleasantly surprised with the final form that shared libraries take. The GCC team have acknowledged the need for an improved system to merging !System. I would hope that moving to the use of shared libraries would *decrease* your support overhead rather than increase it. :)

On VirtualRiscPC spotted on Linux:

mripley: All the comments you've made here since you switched to linux have come across as bitter and with little useful content. Obviously you've got some kind of chip on your shoulder - I'm not sure why you even bother reading drobe or making comments if "there is nothing on RiscOS [sic] that I [need]".

As for the usefulness of VRPC on Linux I agree with Lym - this open a new door for those people who'd like to have one machine capable of swapping between Linux and RISC OS :)
