Tempers obviously run high concerning 'emulation'. In my case, my son is about to turn his back on RiscOS because he uses Windross at school. But he's dead keen to get an Alpha, as he can then have both (and hopefully easily transfer files between them.) In this case, the so-called 'emulation' will save at least one defection. Also, no-one seems to have commented on the fact that, according to MD's web site, there is also a higher spec Alpha portable available which uses a Pentium instead of the Celeron chip. That'd be the one I'd go for, but would welcome comments as I've no idea at all about Wintel machines! Incidentally, I can't see any way that VA on Windows can possibly lead to the destruction of RiscOS. People will only move to Windows if it's better, not because it's there! Why are some people so affraid of someone comparing the two? Do you not have faith that, side by side, RiscOS will be the chosen favourite? -- Jeremy Brayshaw
