The FAQ sounds quite positive, it also distinctly sounds that Castle want to see RISC OS succeed and they don't mind if that even means licensing to compeditors.

I think there's a pretty good case for "someone" developing a genuine RISC OS portable (it's implicit from the FAQ that Castle would favour any serious licensing deal). If anything the *one* good thing Alpha shows is that RISC OS users are despirate for a laptop computer (even if it means having to use Windows and an emulator to get at it). That having been said if the "real thing" appeared many would prefer it to going the Windows/Alpha/VARPC route
