So RISC OS won't be run on Windows anymore, point is though it will continue on *real* ARM hardware and without paying a penny to Microsoft - while I can symphatise with Aaron and Grahame (VARPC is probably one of the best emulators around) - thing is it would ultimately have killed off the RISC OS platform.

So assuming that the above is "bad news" is probably uncalled for. It will shake things up yes, it will cause acrimony and so forth - but if at the end of the day RISC OS survives I believe it will be strengthened.

It's a cause of upset and distress for many but that (I hope) will ultimately put things right and secure RISC OS's future as an independant OS on it's own native hardware platform and that is something that I hope everyone can get behind.

  • ARM shows off prototype netbooks
    A number of RISC OS users have called for a port of their favourite operating system to the range of ARM-powered netbooks unveiled last week. It is understood at least one of the devices features a processor compatible with the ARM Cortex-A8, for which a RISC OS port is being brewed over at RISC OS Open.
