You're right on many points - the strength of RISC OS is in the GUI of the OS and the software, excellent support etc.

However, it is abundantly clear that whilst there is a valid argument against trying to win the MHz battle (which I don't suggest we should or could do), we do need faster speeds for real-world use of the machines - video editing, audio sequencing, graphics and DTP.

And to a certain extent we don't want to trail *too* far behind Windows and MacOS as even the most savvy of users would not buy a 600MHz IyonixPC (let alone a 233MHz RiscPC) instead of a 4GHz AMD machine (leaping ahead a few months to illustrate my point) and the general idea is to get more users in the end.
