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.

Nice, what a quality article ;) Sizes of pictures and their quality as a proof of OS's superiority? Yeah, right ;) First of all, I noticed the pictures created under Mac OS X were much sharper. But as far as I recall, you can choose the amount of image smoothing when saving under Gimp as a jpg, too. And please, a text editor as a proof of an OS's superiority?? I'm not saying anything about the quality of either, but well, this article is standing on pretty shallow ground..

Well, I just tried in Gimp to resize that spider image, convert it to 8bit image and so..Resulting file size 24.6kb, and looks more or less the same as the one created under RiscOS.. What does that tell about my OS? ;)

Not much ;) Except that your OS does not run the vaunted RISC OS Photodesk!
