RISC OS "Last month, I thought I left RISC OS. After 19 years of using Acorn or Acorn-derived computers, my love affair is no longer. I sit here writing this on my Mac Mini, and very happy I am with it too. My Iyonix lies abandoned - still sitting under the desk here, but not connected. And not actually used for some time. And it's weird - because, in some strange way, I thought I would be using RISC OS forever. In January 2005, I said: 'There's people who annoy me on the RISC OS scene, and I still wouldn't think of leaving. The nice people more than cancel it out, and besides - I just couldn't really do without using RISC OS.' So what changed?"

I had similar experiences with OS/2 Warp from IBM.
I've loved it. I used to show it to my friends saying stuff like "See ? You can format a disk, print a document and play majong at the SAME TIME!".
But there where so little application and finding drivers was impossible.
So one day I abandoned it... so sad, switched to windows95 (well now I am an happy mac user.. but this is another story).
