"Perhaps, only if these advances into other areas can some how feed back improvements to the desktop arena, could we appreciate the recent work by Castle, RISCOS Ltd. and Advantage Six to get RISC OS onto more platforms."

The VITAL thing about getting RISC OS onto other platforms is that it will help subsidise the desktop envirionment. I am afraid that desktop RISC OS is always going to be a minority. However, if the OS is invisibly running more devices than you can shake a stick at, and the money made by the licences on those devices (and any technical developments that result from these licences) help keep the computer system that gives me genuine pleasure to use going, I will be happy.
