druck>Yes if ROL were the *only* option and if they couldn't implement ARM based versions of the OS I'd agree. Fortunately the ROOL option is an alternative. That having been said I'd be saddened to see ROL unable to continue supporting ARM.

jess>Yes if there were *absolutely* no alternative - *BUT* if ROL preferred to use emulation so as to *avoid* developing drivers for low level ARM use they'd be even *less* inclined I'd think to try make all the x86 ones that would be required to get RISC OS running "natively" on x86.

I'd also point out the ROOL license *precludes* use of its sources on *emulated* ARM platforms (which is fair enough it's bad enough one RISC OS developer supporting emulation having *both* support emulation would - in effect - truly mean the end of the RISC OS as a computing platform IMHO).
