Great article. Yet again we all agree that the one big issue we have as an OS is the lack of an up to date decent browser. Can we not pool some of our megre resources? We have 4 teams (used in the losest possible way) working on Oregano, Netsurf, WXL and UPP. Ok some are a labour of love and others are commercial. The chances of any of these getting to the latest standards and more importantly then maintaining that development with the best will in the world is zero! As a user I would willingly pay for a "decent" browser. At the moment depending on which site I am attempting to view I have to hack about with at least 3 and then there is no guarentees that it will be fully functional. I am not coughing up more dosh for yet another half functioning attempt. (dons flameproof rig and stands back) :-( PS the one I use most is the one that I haven't mentioned and I have had since the year dot - !Fresco.

  • Get RISC OS running on Puppy Linux with RPCEmu
    As demonstrated at the South West 2009 show, Paul Stewart has managed to produce not only a guide to getting RPCEmu up and running on Puppy Linux - a light-weight and user-friendly flavour of Linux - he's also produced a live CD so anyone interested in trying out RISC OS can boot straight into Linux and test drive the OS.
