mrmac:

What about availability of such devices? Can you still get them new from the manufacturer in sufficient numbers? Are there localised (especially keyboard, but also small things like power supplies) versions available for all users? What about the pointing device (touchscreen drivers)? Could the final RISCOSified product be sold at a competitive price and the development costs for drivers and other required software be recouped? I guess you are beginning to see why Apple switched to x86 now?
