hEgelia: If Select which was remarkably compatible caused problems on your Risc PC, what do you think running a 32bit only operating system will do? No 26 bit applications will run at all.

Even if Adrian does a version of Aemulor for it, what is the point? You are then back to using the same 26bit modules, with the same 28MB restricted wimp slot, but at a fraction of the speed it did when running a 26bit OS, and still plenty of compatibility issues such as with podule drivers. And to put the final nail in the coffin NO VIEWFINDER.

Its an utterly and totally pointless, of less value than even RISC OS 6. If I gave you a copy of RISC OS 5 for Risc PC today, you'd have deleted it and be back to running 4.02 an hour later, and complaining like mad about all the things I've detailed above. I haven't got a copy today, but how many months of effort do you think we should waste to prove that point?
