Even though I still use a RiscPC as a second computer, I am quite happy to keep it running ROS4. I honestly do not see the need for a version of ROS5 that runs on it. It would be better if the people who are going to take advantage of the shared source intiative devote their programming and engineering skills to moving the OS forward. Multicore processors appear to me to be the way silicon technology is moving, with the appearance of a dual-core XScale from Intel last year, wouldn't it be better if attention was focused on making RISC OS use similar and no doubt faster chips that will appear in the future.
