On Wakefield 2006 live news:

Just thinking back on the subject of multi proccessors in risc os, as i beleive this is the way forward. Technically the RISC PC could support multiprocessors, even though only one was a StrongARM. I run a distributed computing project called distributed.net (kinda like seti at home, using spare cpu cycles) and it can utilise the x86 and the ARM at the same time. Also I was reading on Wikipedia that the phoebe would support multiple ARM proccessors. If this is true doesn't it mean that mutli strongArm support would be quite possible today?

Yeah I suppose microsoft have a slight advantage with over 60,000 employees and billions of dollars. Shame they still can't manage to put together an operating system as reliable as Risc OS though. Speaking of risc os, anyone know what the new features in the select 4 are?

On Wakefield 2006 live news:

I don't know if this would be possible but how about some kinda daughter board that could accept multiple processors but risc OS would simply see it as one processor. Kinda like a distributed computing system. If that is a crazy idea. How hard would it be to re-write portions of the Risc Os code to support multiple processors. If Microsoft can manage it surely RISC OS LTD can.

Nice to see castle are "evaluating new arm chips", its just a shame that arm chips are still relatively slow. I read back in 2002 plans for a 1Ghz Arm so not sure what happend to it? Hopefully we'll see some faster processors as demand for more powerful mobile phones increases.

Is there a possibility that this is all a big hoax?
