eQ offers French RISC OS supportBy Chris Williams. Published: 4th Aug 2003, 17:16:59 | Permalink | Printable
Subscription schemes are all the rage these dayseQ France have today launched their ROS-fr subscription scheme which is hoped to fund eQ's work in getting RISC OS noticed in Europe and specifically French speaking countries.
eQ France tell us they are in the process of becoming a Castle Iyonix retailer and aiming to release a French territory for RISC OS 5 before the end of the year. They're also working on French translations for various applications and updating eQ's other software (including the eQ RDP client port). Remember, you'll need to subscribe to enjoy this work. If you don't speak French and retaking GCSE French isn't on your todo list, eQ invite you to subscribe and support RISC OS in Europe.
eQ France's website is sadly a little odd and confusing so if they are hoping to introduce new users to 32bit RISC OS, we hope eQ will have a more friendlier and logical website ready for when they start releasing their work.
In June this year, a4 announced details of work on a German territory for RISC OS 5. Seeing as RISC OS is still very much an international OS, it's welcoming to see organisations outside of the UK touting the platform.
"We tried to set up a low price for ROS-fr and hope that many people will support us. French-speaking countries are a big market and Euroland is even bigger", explained eQ's David Feugey.
