Yup. It's a very "wrong" picture. Blame Castle for being weird about their OS choices. It's far far more beneficial to me to have a 233Mhz StrongARM running lots of software and a decent OS than a 600Mhz XScale running square root bugger all with an OS that's frankly years out of date. Each to their own, I guess. It's a stupid position only perpetuated by the pettymindedness that seems to embody the RISC OS community these days.
