Gulli:

Sure, you're right. There are very few reasons to use assembler on a desktop machine. This is pretty much the case even on RISC OS, where there are not really many occasions you'd need to use machine code in a program and the speed increase isn't generally that great anyway. So I wouldn't really say that this is something you're stuck with on RISC OS any more either.

I just wanted to point out that for some people (e.g. me) the access to ARM code development is a specific reason for sticking with RISC OS, so I wouldn't want it to change.
