can you seriously see a future for riscos on native hardware?

we have a ro4 machine that runs an arm9 (or will do when it's released) or a ro5 machine that runs an xscale.

i can't really see this catching up with today's technology of multi-core 3ghz+ processors.

making the os and software available on popular oses like win/mac/linux would surely spur purchasing of software more than a 1000ukp arm box would?

i know i'd use a few riscos apps if i could run a decent speed emulator under linux, especially for free (i rarely use windows, so varpc is not really an option) just like i use snes9x to run old games, that i would never buy a super nintendo to run!
