David Holden wrote>"Once again you astound us all with your ability to write the longest possible posts saying absolutely nothing which adds to the points being discussed. May I suggest a new carrer in local government or politics where your talents might be better appreciated."

Hey that's low... really low... a person thinner skinned than myself could get offended by that ;-)

However I'll write to the point then shall I?

(1). Firefox on RPC would be too slow and take up too much memory (2). Firefox on a Microsoft Windows ARM emulator such as Virtual Acorn would be pointless as the native one (x86 Firefox) would be quicker and could take better advantage of the underlying PC platform. (3). Peter hasn't explicitly ruled out an A9Home based version *given enough financial support/interest* (4). I think Peter has made his decision based on technical considerations - and given that he's the one that has to implement this I am happy to leave it in his capable hands.

So I think David we can both agree then that Peter has acted reasonably and that an initial port for Iyonix is quite reasonable - however if you wish to dispense with logic and refuse to accept that then feel free to ;-).
