I did not claim it would be easy. I was just refuting the point Chris has made: He claimed the problem was in the RISC OS approach to multitasking, which is not true. VOIP would not need to work on callbacks like ShareFS but ShareFS is a nice example to demonstrate that multitasking does not come into it at this level. Real-time data processing is difficult on any operating system and the interrupt latency of RISC OS is not too bad.
Prototype affordable Braille display in development A low-cost computer-controlled Braille board has been prototyped by a RISC OS-using university student. Undergraduate Edward Rogers hopes to sell his completed units for as little as 200 quid each to schools and families to allow more blind children to continue learning Braille. And he said he wanted to launch his venture using RISC OS-powered kit before offering a package for other platforms. 10 comments, latest by epokh on 27/6/09 12:49PM. Published: 22 Nov 2008
