It's important for this project to succeed, as RISC OS can only claim to be a live platform if it runs natively on up-to-date hardware. Fortunately it seems to be going well. As to RISC OS Ltd, surely this is only a continuation of the de facto native hardware vs. emulation competition we had with Iyonix vs. VRPC, and as such is to be welcomed: a faster-running native hardware solution should put pressure on VRPC to improve their offering. Furthermore, AMS is right: any attempt to frustrate the A8 port would surely incur the wrath of a large section of the active community.
