freder: "What are the limitations?" None, as far as I can tell :D

ams: "You can't extrapolate from your case and suggest that VARPC has had no effect on native hardware sales." You're right - it could have increased hardware sales by tempting ex-users back into the market.

"So how many people use VARPC who never used RISC OS on actual RISC OS hardware then ? I'd suggest very few in short it's shuffling the deckchairs on the Titanic time...." In my opinion, RISC OS is not in a state where we can really have the luxury of attracting brand new users. However, there are a /vast/ number of ex-users out there and if VA temps some back then that's great :)
