Based on what the update states it appears that Castle have said none of their RO5 technology was used in the A9, assuming the HAL is counted in in that then an unqualified congrats *are* due then to ROL, well done guys.

Glad to see these events have not dimmed Castle's enthusiasm for RISC OS, after all they've given us (pre the A9) the first new (and currently only) 32bit hardware - and all without selling a single Windows License to a RISC OS user either (nice !).

As to the A9's upper price of 1500 GBP, if that's the OEM price I dread to think what the retail price will be ! Can't wait to see if the same people who complained about the price of Iyonix will do the same when confronted with a slower ARM9 box at a higher price.

Anyway - congrats again ROL nice work guys - keep it up !!!!
