> Paul is obviously considering the success of the VA on Windows when he talks about his ideal solution being on a basic Linux foundation - and there is a lot of sense in that.

I'm sure he is, and of course that's probably his personal opinion and not necessarily ROL's official position. The bonus of someone producing an Emulator for Linux is that it opens up another market for ROL to sell RO Select to, without them having to do any work...

> Developing an OS for all hardware developers is critical though.

It may be, but its not what ROL is doing (Paul stated that its just not cost effective to produce a version of Select for the Iyonix). Maybe ROOL will have better success at fulfilling this critical task?

    A low-cost computer-controlled Braille board has been prototyped by a RISC OS-using university student. Undergraduate Edward Rogers hopes to sell his completed units for as little as 200 quid each to schools and families to allow more blind children to continue learning Braille. And he said he wanted to launch his venture using RISC OS-powered kit before offering a package for other platforms.
