I am more concerned about the disappearance of Hardware Developers. If Castle are too busy building enbedded RISC OS based set top boxes, who is going to build the replacement for my Iyonix when it eventually goes to silicon heaven in five or six years time. Will anybody be interested in building a box that uses a minority interest Open Source operating system. With Linux, all you have to do is buy a bog standard PC and replace Windows. RISC OS requires ARM based chips that will work in a desktop machine, and porting RISC OS to devices that run mobile phones will have no use if those deviced cannot be made to run a desktop computer.
