RISC OS does America

Published: 3rd May 2002, 17:03:48 | Permalink | Printable

Well kinda. Every little helps.

Here's an interesting story drobe.co.uk received today. It's always great when RISC OS gets a mention in the media and US based RISC OS user Lindsay Thachuk obviously likes pushing boundaries. As a subscriber to a US satellite TV magazine that carries a computer related column entitled Infolink, syndicated by King Features Syndicate of New York, Lindsay decided to introduce the wonderful world of RISC OS to the publication.

The weekly column, written by Bob Vogel, recently covered the pressure on Windows users to constantly upgrade their machines. As a true RISC OS fan, Lindsay couldn't resist emailing Bob to point out a very attractive alternative and the virtues of using a StrongARM RiscPC.

"Three weeks later and my letter is fully quoted and he completes his column with an overview of RISC OS, its history and future for those wanting an alternative OS", enthuses Lindsay. "I cannot find out how far and wide his column is distributed but I would guess it appears in many national weekly magazines that use King Features for support articles."

Keep spreading the word Lindsay.
