markee174: "But is the Arm chip going to deliver what most people expect in terms of performance"
Ahh, if only there was some vague notion of a proposal to run RISC OS on faster, cheaper, more available kit?
"RISC OS should play to its strengths of a great UI with some good, innovative software with full support for cross-platform standards. But this needs to include a good browser and multi-media support."
A great UI's nothing without software, which is increasingly missing; so I agree entirely. It's just a question of how RISC OS gets there: ARMs are being left in the dust, the costs of bespoke hardware are great (in terms of time and money) and there's little to no commercial development.
I can't see how opening it all up and hoping/guiding a port to x86 - including a Rosetta-like compatibility layer for existing apps - can really be any worse than the dead-end road it's on at the moment... (from a desktop user point of view, I don't care about STBs - for all the talk of STBs funding desktop development, where's the real proof?)
