OK it is time to nail the flag to the mast...

I abhor the idea of any kind of recent RISC OS as an emulator.

Alpha is not a problem as people are being sold a second rate M$ machine at a stupid price with RO4 - and it isn't perfect.

Which is good.

However now that we have finally made some kind of advance with RISC OS 5 - why are people getting worried?

If you want to do a RISC OS program you'll *have* to test it on a proper RISC OS computer - simple innit?

Oh and for the education market - you are all victims of M$ & T. Blair.

In other words - you're fcuk'd

The future of RISC OS is all about it's efficiency and the fact that it is ultra groovy to use.

Forget the teachers, it is time to make this OS desirable.
