Simo: Atari is dead, but that has not much to do with emulation. Amiga is surviving because of emulation and porting to already available hardware. And people are buying it because they can always use the hardware for a normal-user-friendly Linux and Mac OS. The only alternative on ARM, for the things Risc OS doesnít offer you, is a hobbyist/sysadmin Linux.

(from: [link] ) 7. What is the benefit - from your point of view - in using the Pegasos instead of other hardware solutions?

<Piru> The number one benefit is the quiet computing. Second is low heat dissipation. Third is low power consumption. These all are pretty much connected... :)

(Pegasos is a new ďAmigaĒ PPC-hardware)

The ARM-hardware isnít anymore a unique selling point for a desktop-machine. Maybe you can even say the work on the development of new ARM-hardware was a waste of resources that could have been used for development of RISC OS.
