The StrongARM is dead...Long live the StrongARM...More than any other single chip I feel the StrongARM has had more of an effect the world computer market. It will forever be regarded in good stance!!! :-)

Just out of idle curiosity had anyone tried commisioning ARM Ltd. To desgin a chip ideally suited to running RISC OS at high speed - after all the SA was put together in next to no time - perhaps it's time for a 'True' StrongARM 2?? As ever RISC OS will survive whatever the market throws, but perhaps it's about time ARM Ltd remembered it's origins and paid back the favour, who knows perhaps the day of an ARM/RISC OS global standard may still be achieved - hey I'm an eternal optimist, allow me my dreams :-)

So come on ARM, sod the portable market and take a chance on throwing Wintel out of the desktop market too!! :-)
