In reply to stevek:

Developing drivers for an existing system, in my opinion is probably the best way of getting a portable RISC OS system. However, as you have said, the question is demand and would demand justify the cost of doing the work?

I would have thought that given the availability of various boards with full documentation available, RISC OS Ltd should take that chance and get their RO6 up and running on something other than the VRPC, A9home and RISC PCs. However, I believe their argument (I may of course be wrong here) is: they are not a hardware developer. How simply making available a version of RISC OS for a widely available ARM based board can be classed as a hardware development is beyond me tho. I would class it as software and well within their scope as the commercial OS develope.
