Jess: VNC is pretty horrible to use, I find; I prefer to have PC and Iyo linked via a KVM using LanMan98 to share directories/folders etc, and switch over to the PC when I need to do something the Iyo can't (like use a Flash-enabled browser). But the fundamental issue remains - why have two computers? If someone came up with a version of RISC OS running on top of (for instance) Ubuntu on x86 hardware I would give it serious consideration. We're constantly told this is too difficult, but I don't find the explanations convincing, and I suspect there are many RO hardware users who would buy such a solution in preference to running VRPC/Vista.
