Hutchies> Castle have (apparently) got a big (embedded) sale somewhere so that should secure the hardware end of things. Point is could they continue to offer a desktop solution while an emulator was being sold ???

As to your comment that "I don't think RISC OS can really survive 'as an independent OS on its own native platform' anymore, unless there is something like VARPC to keep people interested who simply can't afford an Iyonix", so is VARPC the *only* way to run RISC OS other than Iyonix ? Of course not there is plenty of second hand kit that can be had *cheaply* and some of it of relatively high spec (close to the performance of VARPC). If you start from the assumption that the only solution is VARPC then the RISC OS platform would die which was my original point.
