Mart;

Choice is wonderful, if you have it.

I suspect I am in the small minority of RISC OS users for whom 'Deciding what I need to do' includes NOT using Windows.

If within 2 or 3 years the only new machines that can run RISC OS are Windows based emulators then there is no choice left (other than to not use RISC OS at all).

How many times has it been said that 'I would have bought X Y or Z already if it had been half the price'. Well folks the Windows advocates have won the day and you can now get RiscPC performance for half the new price of a RiscPC.

The the real competitor to the Iyonix won't be the Omega but VRPC and with the much bigger Windows userbase of RISC OS 'enthusiasts' I feel rather pessimistic about the outcome of the battle. After all that is what it is isn't it.
