A thought that has just occured to me is that although current ARMs being aimed at embedded devices means we don't get nice fast ones that would make wonderful RISC OS machines, if they weren't any good at embedded would we even have RISC OS any more? If ARMs hadn't found such a niche it was very suited to the development of them might have stopped years ago, in direct competition to the x86.
