How did RiscStation Ltd. get started?

With a history of supplying both Acorn & PC solutions it was easy to see the obvious advantages of the RISC OS system in the many machines that are 10 years old or more that are still in productive use.

This is due to usability of the operating system, reliability of the hardware and the low cost of maintenance and support. This is typically a 10th of that of a Generic PC.
