"RISC OS Adjust is a far cry from its MOS heritage"

More like a near whimper than a far cry, I think.

JessFranco: "Yeah, at least make VRPC work on Linux! That way you could at least have a slim Linux installation suffient to run RISC OS and avoid M$."

There's so much activity around small and/or bootable Linux distributions that everyone's only waiting for one thing...

JessFranco: "Now, if VRPC was being used as a tool to make a more portable RISC OS, module by module, this would be good thing. I doubt anyone is doing this though."

I suppose that ArcEm might be a better start if only to avoid the obstacles of trying to attempt such work with 100% proprietary software.

mrchocky: "Iyonix can't realistically be made cheaper and still have a viable product, and there's virtually nothing you can remove from the Iyonix and still have a sensible computer."

That may be the case, but I still think that Castle and Microdigital could learn a bit from Simtec, in terms of producing reasonably priced stuff and (in the latter case) actually delivering it.
