It's clear that something needs to be done. I can understand the attitudes taken by the various companies, but it's doing their market no good. If they carry on sticking their heads in the sand, there will ne no market left.
For the record, Omega, Imago and Evolution do *not* need a 32-bit OS, since they use SA-110 chips (as in a Risc PC). Evolution needs hardware abstraction - the other two 'emulate' VIDC and IOMD.
