With Acorn's recent announcement it was moving out of the desktop computer market, some people may be wondering "why bother?" I say bother because rescue plans are already underway, in the form of Project Phoenix, and many people don't want to leave their existing computer. We have a duty to make games for them. I am one of these people.
