Wonderful!

I love RISC OS and want to use it all the time, but this is simply not possible. I've never had had that much cash and in any case my work demands a laptop. At present I have a venerable Risc PC dating from the last time I had real desposable income (aka student loan) and a relative's old Laptop running ROX.

ROX is good - it's gone from limping along to a pretty decent sim of the RISC OS way of doing things, over just the last few months - and it's a darn sight better than Windows. The only problem is that it's not RISC OS and can't run RISC OS apps.

Running VA on top of Windows is not satisfactory, even if I could justify a hundred quid for something that - no matter how many excuses I might make - I don't actually /need/.

ROLF looks like it has a long way to go but I think it is a welcome alternative to the current emulators.

Good luck Simon! If you get that Live CD going I'll be wanting one :-)!
