On a related note, Ian Jeffray has written VirtualAmp, which allows a native Windows MP3 player (WinAmp) to be controlled through a RISC OS interface. This improves performance since the hard work of number crunching is performed on the host processor rather than the emulated ARM. The program, which requires Niall Douglas' CallWin32 VA plugin, has been tested on Red Squirrel but Ian expects it to work just as well on Virtual RPC.
Will development of Virtual Acorn and CallWin32 allow more Windows programs to become accessible through RISC OS in this manner? What effect, if any, will this have on native RISC OS application development? It's a talking point - log in to post your comments.
