@Jaffa: The simple answer is this: By open-sourcing RISC OS. Hopefully such a step would lure back a few of the developers that once developed for our platform. They might want to run RISC OS on their current hardware, wich is most likely x86-based. So we might end up with RISC OS being ported to faster machines (giving us option a: faster RISC OS machines) and more developers, especially once RISC OS runs on the hardware wich most OSS-developers have at home: x86 and PowerPC (giving us the resources for option b).
