In reply to rjek: VitrualRPC without RISC OS and then using a ROM imgage of RO5 from ROOL once that is available would indeed be nice and probably cheaper than the current package. Furthermore AFAIR the copy protection was added due to the RO licens inside (the implementation of the copy protection not being user-friendly) so perhaps this can be dropped in a RO5 version? I'll wait and look and hopefully at some time see.

In reply to sa110 You wrote "The reason a RO6 ROM image has not appeared for the A9home so far is more a matter of resources." Well, you could say that whatever does not happen is a "matter of resources" (be it money, man-power, time, or whatever) - only when users have paid for something (like a writeable CMOS to just name one) and wait and wait ... something is wrong. In any case considering the age of the A9home and it's current state adding when I saw the most recent announcement from AD6 or ROL about whatever is happening I must say that this is not encouraging.
