I'm a past user of RISC-OS, but haven't used it for some years (since my A5000 was moved to the basement to make room for a Wintel box my wife had to use for work). I intend buying a VPC for my laptop now with the special offer partly to run some of the old programs (!Draw and !Elite among them), but I also intend to do some experimental compiler work. For this use, the underlying CPU is quite important -- I don't fancy targeting x86 code -- so RISC OS on native x86 would have little appeal to me. But I guess this particular point would matter to quite few users.
