hEgelia: The Apple-like solution would be the best way forward IMO, but would no doubt require a lot of investment (in both time and money terms, even assuming ROL and Castle were amenable to it), which seems a bit unlikely. Pushing RO onto hand-held devices, which sounds like it would still take a lot more investment than the RISC OS market can currently provide, might be a better route for it to have a future, since it'll be in something a little closer to its native environment, but where the hardware is current. It also strikes me as a market where an alternative OS will have a better chance of success, technical considerations aside. And who knows, if it was a success there, that might feed back into some impetus in the desktop area.
