I would like to see ports to other processors. (The only way I can see it appearing on a laptop natively)
The main conflict I can see with an non-arm version of RISC OS is if apps started appearing only for the other processors. Perhaps a better limit might be to restrict the execution of apps to ARM based ones. (While allowing modules to be run natively).
I suspect the possibility of a porting would interest many developers who've been lost to PCs
Whatever, it seems silly to apply the arm only rule to the commercial license
stoppers: I think you are missing something. The XBox 360 uses power processors.
Hardly marginalised. A potentially huge market. Also the name RISC OS would not be silly, as it would on x86.
