I must admit I failed to see the purpose of "hoiking" a PCI card onto a RISC PC, given that the podule bus (to which PCIFace must attach) is considerably slower than PCI (hence people wouldn't gain anything on speed) and also much of the functionality provided in PCI format would already be available in Podule bus format (e.g., NIC's, SCSI cards and so on - bear in mind where faster PCI SCSI cards would be available you'd still need a driver for 'em (!) and also you'd (once again) have no speed advantage as it would have limited by the podule bus).
So you'd gain no new functionality, gain no more speed and spend a lot more to do it - yep the word "pointless" springs to mind.
I suspect PCIFace was as much damaged by the availability of emulation as anything else - those users who'd have upgraded to Iyonix wouldn't need it and those who were continuing with the RISC PC have been "encouraged" to move to PC emulation (again PCIFace not required).
Perhaps if Mr Kortink would apply its talents to the newer RISC OS hardware platforms (Iyonix and Omega) that might make better use of his time and yield more success to boot.
