Reality check. Whatever our feelings about Windows most people find they need it. Much as I'd like to have an Iyonix networked to a Windows PC, and a nice (non-existent) ARM based portable, I can really only afford one machine - guess what that is going to have to be?
It is a shame that there is no ARM hardware on a PC card so that RISC OS could run natively on a suitably equipped PC. ChiOS got scrapped didn't it?
