The BBC Micro world is about applications -real people doing real things. We're aware that things like printers cause lots of problems and a helpful dealer is a must.  Too many dealers are interested in simply selling stock and too many buyers arn't prepared to pay slightly higher prices that dealers offering a real service have to charge.  Acorn are trying to alter this.  Dealers are expected to attend specialist training courses, which are free, so there's no excuse and buyers must support helpful dealers with their cash.
