About? That the Archimedes uses ARM processors, um, no. Acorn designed 
the original ARM processor. The A in ARM originally stood for "Acorn". 
That my A7000 is an embedded device in disguise? No, it's a full desktop 
machine, uses standard RAM, standard IDE hard drives, has a VGA 
connector and PS/2 ports and such. It was sold as a desktop computer in 
the 1990's, but the RISCOS based machine running with ARM processors are 
still around.

Hmmmm... the facts don't really support your assertion.


But then, you don't seem to have done an awfully large amount of 
research on the matter.
