These (nt) posts are beginning to annoy me. I’ve just typed in a whole message and Drobe loses it. Grrrr!

Any, what I think Druck was trying to say is that effort in back porting RO to the RPC would not really move the development of RO forward. Why spend time and effort in porting to an old and obsolete platform with very few users, when you could spend the effort in getting RO working on a much more recent and viable platform?

Of course, as you say, developers can choose how they spent their time, but I would prefer, even as a RPC user, if developers ported to newer faster ARM systems, else we’re not going to be going anywhere fast anytime soon.
