Hardware, Embedded Systems In 2009 ARM showed off prototype netbooks "capable of driving HD content, can surf the web for 8 hours, and will cost round and about 250 USD". Yet still, none have made it to the market. Why do you think this is so? Because ARM signed a deal with Adobe in 2008 to bring Flash and AIR to the ARM architecture, a promise they will finally deliver later this year. And you wonder why Apple won't have Flash on the iPhone when it can hold back an entire product category for two years.

Then it's their problem and I have no sympathy. They can do what they like, but it will annoy me if any real development money is spend pandering to these die hards. It's over, we lost. Unix way is a better way of doing OSs anyway, go and work on the Rox desktop if you must, but a OS is not it's desktop, RiscOS itself is not worth keeping.
