If Castle benefit from a much faster equivalent processor being made available - much like Acorn benefitted from the StrongARM's appearance at more than six times the speed of the ARM610 - then I'll be buying an "Iyonix 3" with a 4GHz XScale in it, two or three years from now.

Maybe this time I'll have to buy a new motherboard and case? Well, since Castle already paid for the 32-bit OS, the hardware abstraction, some up to date video drivers and other bits, I might just manage to put up with that?

There's many a slip betwixt cup and lip, just as the StrongARM upgrade proved a couple of years after the *last* time people wrote off real RISC OS hardware!
