A Conversation for RISC OS Computers

Recently, I remember reading that Eidos use and are still using an Archimedes application for editting the video segments in their games due to its superiority over apps available on other platforms.
More recently, I forgot the name of the application.

I think it might be either Eidoscope or Optima - in any case I think they've moved onto something else now that Phoebe was cancelled .
For me the "Killer Application" is a technical document processor called TechWriter, produced by the gentlemen at Icon Technology (http://www.icontechnology.net ). I quote an interesting little snippet from their web site:
"Our first word processor, MacAuthor, pioneered the use of styles as a way of applying many formatting attributes to a single command. In 1987 Douglas Adams used it to write and typeset his best selling book Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency."

Sounds like another case of a brilliant British idea being better commercially exploited by other nations.
