hzn: What on earth is the point of trying to mangle RISC OS 5 in to Virtual Acorn? Vast lumps (I'd suggest "most") of the emulator would need to be rewritten to make it look like and Iyonix, for what benefit? RISC OS 5 doesn't bring ANYTHING to the table for use on an emulator, and is undeniably less featured than RISC OS Adjust. CTL only wanted RO5 on there because it was theirs and they'd then get a revenue stream and could control it, not because it was technically a better idea.
