"we could well be seeing Windows + VRPC [vastly outperforming the Iyonix] with a much more useful machine to boot"

But slower to !Boot ;-)

Are you implying that Castle's last-ditch strategy is to try to crush the emulator-based opposition? I'd hope that's *not* the case. The best way for them to remain competitive, I'd have thought, is to continue to develop their product-range, and there are encouraging hints in the press release to this effect: i.e. "move the OS forward into the future with the many exciting new 32-bit ARM processors becoming available from various silicon manufacturers." (effectively = pre-announcing, of course)

Moreover, in the press release issued when they purchased RISC OS, they signalled the intention to offer licences for emulators. If Castle thought that it would be them, and not ROL, issuing the licences, and raking in the cash, then that may be at the heart of the dispute...
