dgs: Pity. Oh well, it might've been interesting. And moving even more into the realms of speculation, if it ever allowed RISC OS software running on it to access the hardware without going through the emulator, or to run x86 code directly on it, then it could be a relatively painless way to shifting platforms. This possibly wouldn't be too bad if VRPC itself wasn't running on top of Windows, although it would still be hellishly controversial.
Anyway, it's all just a little random speculation on my part.
