In reply to hEgelia "The company [ROL] appears to have abandoned plans to maintain two versions of RISC OS 4, namely a 26bit version for RiscPC class machines and a 32bit version for future platforms, and instead focused on a 32bit only stream."

Where does this come from.

ROL have stated that they are moving to a common source tree from which versions for 26bit capable machines RISCPC can be compiled and 32bit bit versions for A9,Iyonix etc can. This clearly does not mean a 32bit only stream as it would be silly to produce a 32bit only version for the RISCPC.

There is no doubt that at some stage they will cease development for the "26bit" machines and Paul Middleton did state at one stage they saw just about 2 years maximum for this.

I really wish people would stop posting incorrect information.
