Chris said>"The process of 32bitting software turned out to be pretty trivial, which did Castle a lot of favours,"

So how come it took ROL so long then?

And I'd point out that they Castle also implemented the HAL, had the C++ compiler 32bitted (which by the way also helped ROL I would have thought). Implemented USB2 (something A9 will *never have*).

Please Chris give the Castle bashing a break.... please!

As to the substance of the article VRPC has more users than Iyonix according to the Archive survey. Well here's a thought if you add ALL the VRPC users from the Drobe Survey and the Archive survey they amount to around 10% of the claimed 3,000 VA sales. So where did the other 90% go? May I suggest the PC? (I await the usual counter claims that VA won't damage the RISC OS market (yawn......)).
