I realised on hearing Jack Lillingston and David Atkins talk at Wakefield that their companies have totally different design philosophies.

MD appears to have been developing its own proprietary hardware for RISC OS (though as part of its broader "Spectrum" project). Castle, OTOH, has been using "industry standard" hardware (notably the graphics card) and tweaking the software, by adding on the HAL, to run with it.
