I can't see VirtualAcorn attracting new users. I use it at work simply so I can use some of my favourite RO apps - work only has Windows PCs. (The nice thing about VA is you don't have to be an administrator to install it :-) ).

I've often wondered why, given the energy efficiency of ARM processors (~30 Watts less per computer?) and the resource efficiency of RO (less RAM, longer life for the hard drives etc = more energy savings), there doesn't seem to have been an effort to get backing from the major Green organisations like Greenpeace.
