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.

"whereas a lot more agreed with me."

From the comments on here and The Icon Bar http://www.iconbar.com/ I disagree. The majority of people imply you are wrong.

In-fact I don't think a single person agreed with him on some of his more unusual claims.

Some people using it as their main OS.

Lots of people using it injunction with another OS because they like some feature/program that only RISCOS has.

I don't remember seeing a single message supporting his wider claims.

And no-one else making statements that could be read as insults to users of other OSes either.
