We (users) should have realised from the start that the way to take RISC OS forward was to blindly fund Windows XP machines without giving them indication as to whether the lot would support all the onboard features as/if provided by the underlying Windows XP operating system and make sure that their intended application runs secure and stable on top of a highly flawed OS in the first place.

Yep this IS the way forward. Standing inline next to emulators of defunct home- and gamecomputers running on top of an acclaimed insecure OS.

BTW. fylfot: STD doesn't "manufacture" Windows PC. They're no more than a box-shifter in this respect (just like all the others with their shuttle XPC's orso).

Oddly enough it's been told here several times that perhaps if they really want to use excisting technology; Why not use X-scale Pocket PC's, PALM's or those X-Scale linux PDA's orso. That would be a nifty "Technology demonstration" and a far more interesting "Proof of concept". Just MHO of course.
