MikeCarter: Thing is, how are you going to attract students and hobbyists when RISC OS is so expensive to get into? Virtual RiscPC on its own is more expensive than either the Windows or Mac OS X you need to run it on. The only way you're going to attract people to play with it is to make it either /much/ cheaper to run, or free to run - and I doubt ROL, CTL or VA would be interested in losing what little revenue they get.
