JGZ said "We need our own chipset, because otherwise we will always be dependant on low-end chipsets for the embedded markets."

I don't get this argument. Surely we want to be able to use the cheapest, most readily avaiilable components? What's the point of redesigning, for example, a graphics chipset, when other companies who specialise in this have already done the hard work? What happens if the people making "our own chipset" suffer problems, go out of business etc? We'll be back to where we were when Acorn closed down.
