'Adjust' ROM FAQ onlineBy Chris Williams. Published: 23rd Feb 2004, 23:34:58 | Permalink | Printable
Part exchange offerAs a follow-up to our previous article on the unveiling of RISC OS 4.39, aka 'RISC OS Adjust', we can report that developer RISCOS Ltd. has published online a ROM upgrade FAQ as well as other release details.
RISC OS 4.39 can be part exchanged with a RISC OS 4.02 ROM set for a 10 quid discount on the upgrade price. 'Adjust' will also be initially supplied on Flash ROM, with OTP ('one time programmable') ROMs to be produced if there is sufficient demand.
On the subject of a 32bit Iyonix compatible RISC OS 4, RISCOS Ltd. Managing Director Paul Middleton earlier today explained to drobe.co.uk: "Much of RISC OS 4 is 32bit compatible, but major areas such as Kernel obviously need to be tailored to specific processors or else a suitable HAL added. There is no intention of making RISC OS 4 a 32 bit OS for existing StrongARM or ARM7500FE processors".
