Meet the family and have a promotional brochure

RISCOS Ltd., the exclusive developers of the desktop incarnation of RISC OS, today informed drobe.co.uk that all RISC OS users are welcome to join the company shareholders next month in attending the RISCOS Ltd. Annual General Meeting.

"For the first time this meeting will open to the General Public as well as Shareholders", writes RISCOS Ltd. managing director Paul Middleton, regarding the AGM.

"Anyone wishing to attend should request an Invitation before 20th September 2002 to ensure that adequate accomodation is available. If you want to ask any questions at the AGM please submit them in advance of the Meeting so that suitable information can be made available."

The AGM will be held on Friday 27th September at 1.30pm for a 2.00pm start. The meeting itself will be held at:

Quy Mill Hotel,
Newmarket Road,
Stow Cum Quy,

New RISC OS brochure to net licensees
RISCOS Ltd. have also produced a colourful promotional brochure listing everything great about RISC OS; it does a good job of highlighting key features of the OS despite stretching the truth here and there. The key point however is that the document was drawn up in response to a "potential licensee" requesting further information on RISC OS, at least according to the RISCOS Ltd. website.

"RISC OS is based almost entirely on proprietary code with no chance of hidden backdoors that can arise from using Open Source software"

Yes. You can't be too careful with this open source evilness. I mean, the moment your back's turned some kiddie has r00ted your machine.

What a stupid argument. Security which relies on the hacker not knowing the source code is flawed. Real security makes it infeasible to crack even with knowledge of the source code.
