"What exactly are you trying to argue anyway? A 32-bit OS is pointless, so ROOL should stop?"

The discussion on here at the moment is more about the value of a 32bit OS on a Risc PC, this could be either 32bit RISC OS 5 or 32bit RISC OS 6. At no point has anyone said, including myself that a 32bit OS is pointless. Without the 32bit OS would not have had either the Iyonix or the A9home.

"Whatever you are trying to argue, you surely cannot be saying that RISC OS needs more support when you're sat there with hardware which is around two decades old and insisting that there is no need to upgrade any of it. "

I have simply been pointing out that users may not want a 32bit OS on their Risc PC because it would inevitably stop many if not most of their installed podules working not to mention any old software/utilities they use.

On the other hand, if the Risc PC user does not have any podules, and only uses modern 32bit ready software, then a 32bit version of RISC OS (5 or 6) may just be what they are looking for.
