I think the best way to experience RISC OS is by working through a tutorial involving different apps like Paint, Draw, StrongEd, Filer, etc., demonstrating how drag&drop between apps works and such stuff. The way to offer this experience over the internet, is to set up a few RISC OS machines with VNC or something similar. The CMOS would have to be write-protected, of course. And the HDD should automatically be restored from a default-image once a user is finished and logs off.
