AMS: I'm sorry but I can't agree. It's true that VARPC might take some users away from 'real' Acorn hardware but tbh I think most who would be prepared to spend 1399 on an Iyonix would do so with or without VARPC - it's really aimed at a) those who must use Windows as well (eg. me) and simply can't pay for two computers, and b) people who used to use RISC OS but had to switch and are interested in playing with the other platform (who would _very_ rarely be prepared to splash out on an Iyonix).

I'll be honest, I don't think RISC OS can really survive 'as an independent OS on its own native platform' anymore, unless there is something like VARPC to keep people interested who simply can't afford an Iyonix.
