Connectivity.  IBM PCs can already connect to Econet via Acorn's Ecolink card.  Macintoshes will link soon and gain a User Port too.  BBC Basic now runs on Nimbus, PC and Mac; soon it will go onto the Amiga.  First Word  Plus and Timeworks will link PC, Atari and Arc; Pipedream comes in PC, Z88, Arc and Beeb flavours.  As more people buy Arcs, more software will migrate from the PC and St world.
