hEgelia>"the jump to VirtualAcorn is a professional and liberating one. Perhaps it can mean the beginning of an x86 based version of RO."

Ahem....

Liberating you by tying you irrevocably to Windows which has no link *whatsoever* to RISC OS where MS could implement policies and change its means of working in such a way that they could (inadvertantly) lock VA out an leave us high and dry ????

As to an x86 version of RO have you *ever* compared the two instruction sets ? A fair proportion of RO is still *assembler* (in short will still need to be emulated - hence it will need VA or something like VA to run). There is (IMHO) no possibility of RO becoming x86 native.

As to Linux turning into a free version of Windows I wouldn't say that too loud in case any Linux users would hear you ;)
