druck>I suspect the computer press are not *in the least bit taken in* by any of this. Let's face it the computer press (for the most part) has been very symphatetic to the sale of windows based machines. As these Acorn (!) machines are windows based too they'll be quite happy to parrot any line they're given (after all the OS license all winds up in BillG's pocket - and thats something the computer press for the most part don't seem to mind).
Personally I believe that although *legally* they may be in the right one must query the moral legitimacy of this "new" Acorn. If the purpose is to associate unrelated computer products (and peoples memories of these) with PC's then that is IMHO dishonest. That having been said is it any more dishonest than saying VRPC running on a PC make that a "hybrid computer" - when in actual fact all it is is still a PC ?
I think this is one of those things that's going to run and run ;(
