Hi all:

I think the same applies for the all market of the day, still ARX was on the market through some other companies products, how can you be so sure, it wasn't that as well:


Thanks in advance

Hi all:

Well indeed, that they sell like 200 copies of ARX Acorn/Olivetti (besides 100 or so developers on the developer machines):


If so, they didn't release because of the cost issues were very important as you can see in this 01:30 video


Anyway the history behind that system is on this machine:


"CPU Clock8MHz"



It seemed that the Acorn had not released because of cost issues rather than marketing reasons, since the selling machines were not ready for its system:


But the compiler (I think called CAMEL) was not to blame, since it had a pretty good performance in terms of the chip (yeah it was but even not that fast for such machines cost relation). Later it wasn't released for some other reasons (would I know why, I guess they just took C route).

Thanks in advance
