Are we so dissimilar?
If you asked us to list the troubling issues facing the RISC OS platform right now, the lack of more modern hardware support and the OS development split between Castle and RISCOS Ltd. would probably be there, right at the top, beating other problems like the USB split between Castle and Simtec and the gradual slowdown in software development...

Well, having used both, I can say that there are lots of things in RiscOS we have yet to see in AmigaOS; unicode and modular system for networking filesystems for instance (meaning that you can access smb, nfs and whatnot through the same interface, the protocols are implemented as plugins)
On the other hand, RiscOS has no command line as we know it (their command line is more alike ARexx Shell) and also RiscOS is cooperative multitasking.
Also I find the userinterface a tad too much focused on drag and drop.
Oh, and btw.. the Windows taskbar? Stolen from RiscOS :)
