You guys seemed to have missed the point about a 32 bit OS. Yes we want one, and Omega will support one, but if none of the Hardware companies have actually committed to ROL to requring a 32 bit version(or perhaps committed some money to develop it) then it will never happen.

As Paul said, ROL is not a charity and has to pay programmers for any work done. Once the Omega is available and the Xscale is being produced, we might see ROL starting to develop a 32 bit OS, but a 32 bit OS has to developed alongside software that will run on it.
