The article is clearly wrong then as Paul stated that they would have a common source tree to be able to compile 32 and 26bit versions of RISCOS4 Select.

Also why have a 32bit version of Select for your RISCPC which would mean you have to spend 100+ for Aemulor to run all your existing programmes unless you upgrade them and also take a performance hit as well , when the 26bit Select will be from the same source and have none of these issues. In essence a 32 and 26 bit version compiled from the same sources is a universal version.

If you want 32bit then buy a new machine and get all the performance advantages as well. My RISCPC has been upgraded to Kinetic but I hardly use it now I have an Iyonix and great as it was to last this long everything has it's day.

What we must have is a universal 32bit version that runs on the new systems like Iyonix, A9 or any other new machine not legacy kit. RISCOS4 32bit for A9 is the first step and then Select32 is the next with RISCOS6 being the end game perhaps combining Select32 with RISCOS5.
