Jwoody: Linux on ARM is several magnitudes faster than RISC OS, due to the fact that it has a good, modern design. I suspect even if non-blocking I/O, good PMT and a virtual memory system were implemented, Linux would still have a noticeable edge. I remember fondly that RISC iX also made better use of the hardware than RISC OS, by using the interrupt prioritisation PIC on the backplane, that RISC OS just ignores.
