Business realities? Pricing a machine at a level that only a small percentage of RISC OS users can afford or are willing to pay is business UNREALITY at its craziest. Especially as there's now a new 'business reality' called VirtualRPC.
It's even crazier still if Castle actually want a RISC OS scene in large part based on new, 32bit machines and RISC OS 5. Otherwise, it'll be a scene based on emulators - many downloaded off Gnutella - and £50 RISC PCs from Ebay/school jumble sales.
