So either you go for up-to-date hardware and out-of-date OS or up-to-date OS and out-of-date hardware. Great choice folks.
I was under the impression that the Iyonix ran most software these days. Besides software needs to develop, you can't keep running the same moose over the years. The applications may be good but they will be out-classed by alternatives on different platforms. That would be pretty much handing a noose to the user-base. I assume software developers would much rather develop for up-to-date hardware. Yes, you can run a nice OS on different hardware but who would develop new software to be run on an emulator? Wouldn't they just develop for the original OS?
