The x86 PC advantage is that you dont need a router - you can use a USB phone, or the built-in mic/headphones and a USB ADSL modem and you've got your VoIP phone.

Of course, we cant use USB ADSL modems, so as you need a hardware router (or PC acting as one) to get broadband on RISC OS, it removes this advantage.

Another advantage is that you can combine VoIP with video conferencing - which there is still very little dedicated hardware which does this (and its very expensive) , so your existing PC hardware makes an ideal platform.

Cheers.
