IMHO the *only* thing RISC OS Ltd did that was wrong was to give permission to ship RO4 with emulators (and not only that Select too (their crown jewels)). It may have made short term commercial sense but (IMHO) longer term it spells trouble for the platform.

It would be a pity if the ARM hardware component to RISC OS was lost just when ARM seems to be making positive noises about improving performance (e.g., 2MB high speed caches and so forth). If *we* value the independance of RISC OS then it *must* exist on its own hardware, VARPC does *nothing* to help this.

I would be *nice* if some accomodation could be reached between ROL and Castle, I am not so sure an accomodation that kept Emulation in the market place would be a good idea.
