TonyStill: I'm told that Pace did the HAL work - and the whole point of HALs is that it makes it trivial to port to new platforms. Hardly hard work. Bug fixes should be expected - they're not often difficult. I myself have fixed bugs in the FileCore in RO3.8 by just using Zap and a disassembly. Hardly effort. They've certainly not put anywhere near as much time into it as ROL have, even if you don't think ROL's additions are all that useful. (I certainly don't -- which is why I never bought Select.)

egel: Pace developed a 32bit OS for their business. If you ever cared to visit them on one of their numerous open days, you'd have seen RISC OS running on a purely 32bit CPU, running TechWriter and AMPlayer.
