VPRC still does not perform 3x faster for computationally intensive Photodesk operations on the top of the range dual core intel here at work, and if I were to get one of those myself, I would be using the full native power with non RISC OS software.

I'm afraid it either has to be a genuine ARM based system running RISC OS and only RISC OS, or if I have to buy an x86 box with the effort of maintaining another OS, that's what I'll be using most of the time. VRPC will eventually become relegated to just retrieving the odd old Impression document or some such.

ARM based RISC OS hardware is the only thing that makes me interested in writing software outside of working hours, otherwise I'll spend the entire time inside of FireFox.
