That *is* good.

I can't see me wanting to run many old programs on an Iyonix though, apart from the odd game/demo. Can anyone suggest any they're going to use?

Sounds a bit like a software LEG Puller. I mean ARM Twister.

But most games won't work anyway, because apparently bank switching is not allowed (see my other thread).

Most of the requests have been for Impression obviously, but we've also had a number of people asking for Sibelius, Eureka and various databases.

Ah, makes sense - I don't use any of them, which is why I didn't think of them ;)

Ah, now I *would* use PhotoDesk; but I don't, because I can't afford it :(

I can't see why anyone would want to use Impression rather than Ovation Pro these days (except perhaps cost).

Loading old files, perhaps. Back in the day, Impression was considered better than Ovation (this is before Ovation Pro came out and support for the Impression range was dropped). Ovation Pro can load a lot of Impression files but I don't think it can do them all.

The same is happening in the Mac world with Quark XPress, the main DTP app, not being OS X friendly. There is a decent OS X app, Adobe InDesign, but lots of people still want to stick with XPress - even though Quark seem to be downsizing their Mac efforts.

To port it to RISC OS, of course ;)

I don't know how well it can convert them and have never had impression. But:

How many people have documents which are:
:coffee:complex and so cannot be converted automatically or just rebuilt (ie save as text then redesign)
:coffee:still of importance and so cannot be abandoned
:coffee:not possible to store as one or more hardcopies for photocopying

?
I wouldn't have thought many documents would fit all three conditions.

A number of people that we've spoken with at the shows just didn't want to learn another DTP package. After all Impression is a great program, and IMO well written too; it's a shame that it's unlikely ever to be updated.

That aside, Aemulor isn't really aimed at any particular program. Personally I'm using it to run StrongED until that gets converted :)

I have to say it's very easy to use, and once you've learned all the keyboard shortcuts... wel, it's hard to move to another package just for the sake of it. If it ain't broke...

I suppose I'm just an Ovation Pro fan ;) I have used Impression Style extensively at school though; there's no denying it's a beautiful program. I would like to have a play with Publisher :)

Although I never use any of those these days; letter-writing/reports are done on Techwriter, and anything I would have considered doing any DTP for would now be web-based instead.
