What this emulation business means is that (effectively) the concept of an RO laptop running on ARM7500 hardware is *dead* (afterall the ARM7500 solution would be slower).

It also opens the possibility that MD *could* (*if* Omega proved impossible to release) offer to provide a similar set up on a desktop PC (running a high end x86 core like a 3GHz P4 or and AMD Athlon Barton of about the same ilk).

I am not saying that this will happen - but it becomes slightly more likely if a laptop PC running WindowsXP becomes the next RISC PC portable and that people quietly accept this.
