'First Steps' book finally in printBy Chris Williams. Published: 11th Sep 2004, 20:32:41 | Permalink | Printable
Better late than neverOriginally slated for publication in May 2003, and then later delayed in March this year, Alligata Media have announced that its First steps with RISC OS 4 dead tree guide is finally in the post.
"Covering vanilla RISC OS 4 (the standard RISC OS 4.02/4.03 variants) it explains, in plain english, everything you need to get started with RISC OS 4 itself", describes Alligata's Dave Bradforth in his announcement. Later parts to the book, which like the Iyonix user guide is printed in a binder format, intend to cover RISC OS software, RISC OS Adjust and VirtualAcorn software. No timescale was given as to when these updates will appear, however.
In case you're wondering, earlier in the year Alligata were reluctant to cover RISC OS 5 due to what we understand is a low interest in the book from Iyonix users. The book is distributed by dealer APDL and if you order before the end of October, you'll get future updates to the guide "free of charge".
APDL - contact them for more details. pricings, etc.
