I think that on the above article Chris is failing to get to the root of the concerns that some of us have about emulation as a way forward.

For example I like and use CDBurn and will often choose that on my RiscPC for compiling a CD rather than Nero on my PC. However if the choice was between Booting up the PC and using Nero or booting up the PC then from there booting up VirtualRiscPC then using CDBurn with the possible disadvantage of a performance hit from using an emulator rather than a native application I may well decide to use Nero.

It is the same with editing any Word documents I have been sent. At home I currently edit them with EasiWriter but on a PC would I simply use Word for a quick look and edit?.
