You've got to realise that Guttenprint is modern software designed to run well on today's typical machines, not ancient creaking relics such as RISC OS systems. A mid range x86 box is well over 100x faster than a StrongARM Risc PC, and even my original underclocked EEE PC is about 4x faster than the Iyonix.

Guttenprint is also designed to run on modern OS's where claiming 64MB is non only a drop in the ocean compared to the overall memory in the machine, but even if there isn't 64MB free the VM system will make it available to the program as an when it is used.

So you've either got to put up with the performance limitations using old underpowered machines, and be grateful someone even thought it was worth the effort to still support them, or it's time to buy something which is capable to doing the job you demand of it.
