The list in the article of all the on-board PCI devices highlights a fundamental difference in approach between Castle and Microdigital.

David Atkins at Wakefield gave an interesting talk about the trials and tribulations of dealing with chip manufacturers during the process of developing new dedicated hardware to work with RISC OS in his "Spectrum" of machines, including the Omega.

Castle have taken a load of industry-standard devices - see PCI list above - and made RISC OS work with them.

Which is the better approach? Discuss.
