What makes you think it'll be slower? There are many technical things you can do when in 32 bit mode that aren't feasible in 26 bit mode. Such as shared libraries, which lead to better memory usage and better cache usage, and thus faster. Future processor upgrades for the RiscPC are possible, but let's face it, it'd be silly. And single source *is* an advantage to the user; it's less likely to get screwed up.
