Boggling. You'll go back to RISC OS 3.7 status just for a bit of extra speed. Get a Pentium 4 and run DOS on it. Then you can watch ancient apps run at utterly ridiculous speeds. Not much use tho. Ok, I'm stretching the point, but that _is_ the point as far as I'm concerned. I simply see no benefit whatsoever at a little bit of speed if I have to sacrifice most of the applications and 3 years of OS development. Castle won't tell ROL any of the info required to put a 32bit Select on Iyonix (HAL is a joke really - it covers bugger all) so until we see Castle grow up and stop trying to play high and mighty with RISC OS, we're stuck aren't we. Great.
