AW: I'm sure you do. But the RiscPC is still a hopelessly bad architecture in terms of speed of access to hardware etc, even if the Kinetic does provide marginally faster memory. It also has small caches. I don't understand how people can cope running Firefox on an Iyonix - it's unusably slow. Running it on a RiscPC would just be insane. It's not as if replacements for the RiscPC with a far superior architecture havn't been available for a while, now.
