Thanks to druck for a concise and informative summary of the emulation issues. It has become fashionable to decry the shortcomings of RISC OS compared to modern platforms, and I'm not saying the criticisms are misplaced; but we shouldn't overlook the fact that RISC OS has merits that have ensured its continuing use by, and the loyalty of, far more people than an obscure 20-year old OS has any right to expect, including many of the correspondents here. If a way can be found to combine these merits with the advantages of a modern system, a truly exciting and interesting future for the platform could be assured: I certainly hope so.
