I've always understood that without a HAL, a complete rewrite was required to enable Risc OS to run on a 32-bit ARM chip. So presumably 32-bit Adjust now has a HAL, and indeed, a different HAL to RO 5, since the ARM9 chip architecture is different. Does this mean that the two branches of the OS are in fact diverging, and indeed are competing with each other for non-desktop market share?
