A letter from RISCOS Ltd.Published: 18th Sep 2001, 18:54:21 | Permalink | Printable
To clear up any recent confusion and to set the record straight about the futureof RISC OS, Paul Middleton writes..While at the RISC OS 4+ press meeting held at the Pace Cambridge office in August, drobe.co.uk learnt that a number of articles published by a well known RISC OS magazine contained references to RISCOS Ltd and its products and plans for the future.
After obtaining permission soon after the press meeting, drobe.co.uk can now bring you the following comments written by RISCOS Ltd.'s manager director following the publication of the articles. RISCOS Ltd. is the central developer of the desktop version of RISC OS and is expected to ship the first CD of it's RISC OS 4+ subscription scheme this month. The following comments have now been published in the Letters page in October's Acornuser. drobe.co.uk has felt it necessary to reproduce the letters not only because we promised we would at August's press meeting but also for those drobe readers who unfortunately don't subscribe to the long running Acornuser magazine.
As one of the people steering the RISC OS desktop market, managing director Paul Middleton in his letter clears up any confusion or possible errors in the Acornuser articles as well as spelling out what is in store for the RISC OS market and how things are currently shaping up. Incidentally, Paul will be appearing tomorrow at the Manchester Acorn User Group and, according to the MAUG organisers, "Paul will be talking about, demonstrating, and answering questions on RISC OS 4+ and the Select Scheme. You should also be able to join the scheme on the evening! Whether you're already a subscriber to Select, or are making up your mind whether to subscribe, this should be extremely interesting. We should also have a "big screen" present, so that everyone has a decent view of what will be a first demonstration for most."
Finally, our Select preview article is being written as we speak (as well as our Vantage review). Plus all the news items we promised we'd publish and all the latest news too.

NetSurf team founds formal organisation
During a public meeting held over IRC tonight, the NetSurf team formally founded an organisation "in order to have a bank
account and appropriate protections for the funds and assets of the
NetSurf Project". Michael Drake was elected chairman in a three-way race for the top spot, John-Mark Bell was made treasurer and Daniel Silverstone was elected secretary. The group, which is partly funded by donations from punters, will hold its first AGM at the Wakefield 2009 Show on April 25.
