The key point about emulating RISC OS is that it allows RISC OS to "happen" on devices that wouldn't be practical to develop "pure-RISC OS". Given that RISC OS laptops (and other formats) haven't become reality, emulation gives users an option that they wouldn't otherwise have. Addtionally, remember that schools/businesses often provide machines or grants-towards-machines which aren't RISC OS based. Thanks to emulation, such machines can be made RISC OS compatible!
