"Because we have 2d input and output devices still."

Good point. I'm just a dreamer as you might have picked up already... and sometimes I just get a bit fed up with an apparent lack of radical progress it seems. It's my intention to get a laptop (be it powerbook or VA Adjust) in the not too distant future and it's a fact nowadays that a 'good' laptop may fulfill the same needs a desktop machine does in terms of music production/composing.

I'm using an ARM (RISC OS 4.37) and K5 (Win95) 2nd cpu in my RiscPC and I'm not too sure what I could gain from a hydra expansion or a second ARM. Another interesting tool seems to use the PC FPE accelerator by RISC OS, but is not really beneficial on StrongARMs.

I'd agree it would be easier to convert VA to another platform than RISC OS, and perhaps if the current VA on Windows proves succesful enough it could be ported to Mac or Linux? If that would be worth it ..

It seems just as arrogant to block any non-RISC OS browser on some pro-RO website, as the other way round which I encounter from time to time.

As to 'important to lead', well I guess RO does lead in certain area's already, if we would only solidify these area's and build up more the weaker aspects in relation to current/future user/market demands.
