HEgelia: Hence why I said make available for free distribution.

I agree if there was a VA5000 type package free on all major platforms (with 16M RAM and network and host FS support) it would be of benefit. First It would attract retro gamers. Then some would find the range of good software that still runs on 3.11 and may attract some to modern RISC OS. It would also help those who use RISC OS at home and something else elsewhere, and could make the difference between jumping ship or not. It may even stimulate some software developement, a free fast emulator could easily quadruple or better the number of RISC OS users.
