Rob> Thanks for the clarification on MIPS.

In some applications power is *not* an issue (the new xScale referred to by Drobe hits 10 Watts dissapation - so can't exactly be described as frugal) in those scenarios ARM *is* up against PPC and probably MIPs as well. I don't think ARM can really sit around admiring how well it's done and become complacent - and they do seem to be trying to up their performance (about time). None of these ARM's may be "targetted" at the desktop, but if (at the end of the day) RISC OS can better exploit the enhanced performance who would mind ;)

Thanks again and regards
