Dons flameproof suit... :-)

To Me RISC OS is an operating system. It runs RISC OS apps. For me that is the end of the story. If it runs on ARM, x86 or indeed is powered by a hamster on a wheel.

What I simply want is a faster desktop experience and a more stable experience. If that means running on emmulation via WinXP then fine. If that means porting the OS to x86 then fine. If that means sticking with the situation that my image files wont load at a respectable speed if at all then I won't use RISC OS. Therefore, for me the OS has to run on cheap mainstream hardware at the fastest possible speed. FYI My image files are 50-500Mb/image. YES 1/2 a Gig.

Cheers Bob
