RISC OS "Gosh! I didn't realize how much discussion my original article would create. A lot of people seemed to accuse me of living in cloud cuckoo land, whereas a lot more agreed with me. I think those who disagreed have either never used RISC OS or just liked a good rant! In either case, I feel compelled to write a short follow up article clarifying some of the points I made in the original article - all of which were perfectly valid." Read the follow up article.

"Why does it even matter if the OS is under active development? If the functionality of the OS and its associated software serves your needs, that should be sufficient. Having a stream of updates to the OS or new applications being released for the OS is just icing on the cake."

I would say that they're more than just icing on the cake. I don't know about you, but I wouldn't use an operating system with no updates.

I mean really - if you're telling me that updates aren't necessary, then I would really like to have your attention span, your Operating system, and your uber super duper sweet copy of DOOM. Well maybe I am getting carried away. But I would love perfectness.. I haven't run into an operating system that felt perfect to me since... forever?

Come on, who wants to use a web browser from 1998 for browsing regularly? I mean sure it's nostalgic, but I want useful. Not nostalgic.

Now I have said my stupid thing I have been wanting to say ;)
