jc> Now this is purely speculation but (to quote STD as reported on Drobe in an article by Chris Williams [link]). It was stated that (with respect to STD re-opening) that this "may be subject to Castle Technology Ltd fulfilling certain obligations in a timely manner."

Like (perhaps) supplying a variant of the HAL adjusted to work with the STD ARM9 ? Now that's purely speculation but it seems highly unlikely that after years of foot dragging by ROL that suddenly they have 32bit just *after* they come to a settlement with Castle.

But then that's the marvel of speculation it can mean something or nothing at all.......
