> I disagree with the statement that ROL are looking backwards but I do wonder what the strategy is (or if they actually have one).

Someone asked what the 'wishlist' for Select was for the next year. Paul stated that everyone at ROL had their own ideas, but he wanted to concentrate on fixing bugs that have been present in RISC OS for ages (You know, the ones nobody notices).

In follow up to the questions about possible new ARM hardware, Paul said that he considered an emulator running on a minimal Linux distribution was his ideal solution. Where Linux can handle dealing with all the various devices (graphics, audio, network etc.) and the emulator would then just access them via common Linux APIs.
