Unusually, I agree with druck again! The original concept was a ridiculous hype vehicle that entertained punters with short attention spans, gold diggers, and lazy journalists, thus netting the one trick pony behind it a fair score. There's no basis for extrapolating business genius from the exercise or for considering it a viable revenue generating model.
Of course, "business genius" in modern Britain is all about laying employees off and cashing out, anyway - other concepts beloved of our journalist chums.
Community-produced RISC OS 5.14 in final testing A RISC OS 5 ROM image produced from RISC OS Open's shared source project and code contributed by volunteer programmers has been submitted to Castle for testing. Once it has passed a round of QA, Castle, aka Iyonix Ltd, is expected to ship the new ROM image to end users. A copy of the ROM image, which is suitable for XScale-powered Iyonix computers, is available for download now for anyone crazy enough to test it on their hardware. ROOL's Steve Revill said: "This ROM build includes a snapshot of all the latest updates and submissions to the shared source project from the community." 14 comments, latest by jlavallin on 14/12/08 10:36AM.
