AMS> The "weird" choice was for Castle to get their OS from, shall we say, "otehr" sources, rather than do the sane thing and get ROL to do a 32bit version - which I'm pretty damn sure they would have done if asked.

As for VA/S3 on a PC ... it's faster than Aemulor can hope for, and they're stuck with a 600Mhz CPU wheras PC power is still storming ahead (I see AMD have just released Xp3200+, Opteron is here and Athlon64 will be with us this year!). I guess I basically just don't care what actual hardware I'm using, so long as I "see" ARM/RISC OS at the top. :-)
