Two thoughts, once the SA-110 finally goes the fastest processor able to run RISC OS (26bit) will be the venerable ARM7500FPE (isn't the latest version 64MHz ?).
It also (and this *is* truely wierd) means that the Omega (if it takes much longer) won't have it's primary processor (xScale doesn't run on it yet, and wasn't the SA-110 supposed to run the 26 bit code - or is how ARMTwister works changed (again ?))
Anyway MD can use an excuse like "Sorry gov' we got the computer done but then Intel goes and bloody kills the processor orf" or something to that effect....
