Stewy> You seem pleased that VARPC *might* (and note this is *only* speculation on your part) be outselling the Iyonix. Does it please you that ROL and VA are collectively acting as salesmen for Microsoft - does this in *no way* bother you ????? Nor does it bother you that this *must* be having some effect on hardware sales of Iyonix (and also Omega) ?
Although this has been done to death, emulation *long term* will finish off the RISC OS platform (by that I mean the OS *and* hardware), perhaps you're one of those people who honestly believe that this is somehow a good thing, if 100% reliance on Microsoft for the future of RISC OS is *ok* then nievity will have won out over common sense.
If you are correct and VARPC is outselling the Iyonix (and by implication Omega as well) then things don't look too good do they ? Shame that you've managed to turn a good news story (ROL making ROM based RO4 Select available) into a *bad news* one.
