The entire business of Mac OS X running on these fast and powerful x86 Intel Chips makes one wonder if it could be possible to likewise get RISC OS running 'natively' on such hardware.

I know this idea has been dismissed as involving too much work to be practical in the past, but one can't help wondering, " what if ? ".

The Virtual Acorn emulator is an amazing advance for RISC OS, but the MacMen seem to be going one better...
