simo: Sadly true, and trying desperately to ignore the fact that emulators can do it faster is, IMO, burying heads in the sand. I've said it before, at the end of the day the native hardware just isn't up to scratch to compete. If RISC OS is to have any future it either needs a new ultra-powerful ARM, or to be ported completely to another system, and neither of those seems likely. The anti-emulator people seem to think that that would all be a non-issue if it wasn't for emulators, but as far as I can see that's all that'll keep it going for a bit longer.
