JWoody: Will RISCOS Ltd still produce a select version for RO5?

After 6 years of excuses, what do you think?

Just as RO6 is increasingly aimed at VRPC (due to Aarons involvement with ROL), any future for RO5 lies in putting it on an open source emulator running on an open source OS, using the HAL to interface better to native code drivers, and writing a much better optimising JIT. VA have sat on their arse for 6 years with little improvement on the core emulation or OS crossover since Red Squirrel, and there is plenty of scope to produce the product people actually want, with Windows not required.
