For full-time users of RISC OS (ie. those who use RISC OS as their main system), VirtualAcorn is bad news. It's going to impact on hardware sales. If hardware sales fail and consequently there is no more hardware, you won't have any developers left at all. No-one will develop for an emulated system, because it's not going anywhere. And no one will buy a standard Windoze box running a strange OS under emulation - the sexy ARM-based hardware is part of the selling point.

If you use Windows mostly and want occassional access to a recent version of RISC OS, VirtualAcorn is perfect.
