Of course, when it is, there'll still a big whole where the reason for using it should be. I don't ignore VirtualAcorn because of the speed, but because it hasn't got basic modern functionality at the moment.

Hopefully the interest created by a new machine and an open sourced OS will lure new developers, but I do think its worth reminding ourselves that being released on modern hardware will not make Riscos a viable system---only *enable the creation* of a viable system.

For example, if there is a very low cost machine available, I will switch my efforts back from initially developing the braille cell display exclusevely for Windows to developing it for Riscos also, as originally planned.
