It's now possible to get ARMs with multiple processors on a single chip ( [link] ), which presumably would be easier to utilise than creating something like the hydra from scratch.

I'm not sure how suitable RISC OS would be for multiple processors though. Most programs don't use threading for example.

Whilst it'd be great to have multiple processor RO machines and maybe it's the most sensible solution to the limited ARM speeds, personally I'm still happy that there are some great native options for RISC OS available right now.
