With the introduction native Risc OS Box that is both powerful and affordable brings Risc OS with a possible dilemma.

What if it doesn't sell? If after all these years an affordable Risc OS Box doesn't sell then I believe it is probably a clear signal to all developers (software or hardware) that there is no worthwhile Risc OS desktop market.

I have been a long time believer than should a cheap and powerful Risc OS box was to appear then I would buy one. I am now looking forward to standing by this claim.

Good hardware at a Good Price.

With other initiatives bringing powerful open source linux software to Risc OS, I hope we can time the release of good hardware with good software.

Congratulations to all on what I believed was financially impossible - the introduction native Risc OS Box that is both powerful and affordable.
