I still think a lot of people have not fully appreciated the level of damage done to the market by events earlier this year and I don't think RISC OS on desktop machines will ever recover.
I certainly don't see any great future for RISC OS on desktop machines. Embedded products yes. Not desktop.
A hell of a lot of people walked quietly away from the RISC OS platform because of the dispute and are still leaving because of it.
As far as predictions go, well I wouldn't like to say but I hope that VRPC becomes available for Linux.
