Surely the reason why Acorn is now dead, is because of poor marketing
strategy and expensive products.
Or is that too intelligent for you.

Probably not.  I've seen it used in other (non-RISC OS) groups before now.

The Sinclair Spectrum is more powerful than Acorn crap
This is true.The Acorn BBC is a really weak machine and the mighty Spectrum crushed him ! And the crappy Electron is only good for ass-wiping and shit-identification in toilet computers.

Misc Acorn/BBC Hardware/Software up for free.
Hi Guys, I have been a keen retro computing enthusiast for as long as I can remember however I have no come to a point where I can no longer store the stuff I have. I have been slowly but surely giving things away over the last few year. I still have quite a few bits which as I uncover them whilst sorting the loft/garage/cupboards etc, I am starting to list and wondered if you or people you know might be interested in any of it. So I guess comes the shameless plug as I am listing it on my 'free to a good home' site called AnyGoodToYou.com where we have specifically set up a...

Was Acorn the first?
I occasionally like to reminisce, and it has seemed to me that a lot of what is now accepted as standard stuff I first saw on Acorn computers. Now, knowing that my experience isn't as great or diverse as that of some here, I thought it might be worth asking if anyone knows of earlier versions of: (a) an icon bar or equivalent pre August 1988 when RISC OS 2 was first shown at a public exhibition (the PCW Show); (b) a button bar or equivalent prior to ArcWriter's release in late-1988; (c) anti-aliased screen display font technology before the Archimedes' bitmap (later outline)...
