On Price Comparisons:

Just to bring people up on the 3.1 points.

I was lucky enough to be able to buy an A5k new, it still goes but my main RO machine remains the A5k Mk2 which replaced it in ~97. Only in the last year have I been able to afford the A7k or RiscPC sitting ontop of the PC I'm writing this on. The A7k (~35 from Wakefield 2002) is dilligently running !Webjames all day everyday & the RiscPC (70 from Wakefield 2003) awaits my rapidly decreasing ammount of free time to prepare it for my preferred configuration and disc structure amongst other things.

For some of us buying the latest RISC OS machine is a pipe dream, I'd like to support the platform more but I have a family to feed & my wages only go so far. To refer to everyone stuck on 3.1 as leaches is unfair in many ways and shows more than a touch of arrogance.

Just my 2p.

    Didn't make to the South East 2008 show in Guildford this year? Not to worry, because on top of the usual Drobe coverage, you can now watch videos of the presentations made by RISC OS Open and RISC OS Ltd staff at the event. Recorded live at the show, the videos, in which products and projects are talked up by developers to punters, also include question and answer sessions from the floor.
