I fully agree with you that lead still has its advantages, if the industry had no concerns with the lead free process there would be no exemptions but there are?, also lead is a naturally occuring material and there have been no studies that I have seen to suggest any leakage from PCBs back into the environment, the amount of lead used in many products has also reduced purely because many products are now surface mount therefore are smaller so use less lead?.

Like many of these ideas CE,RoHS they start out to be good ideas and then "experts" get called in for their opinion and they start to build little empires to protect their new found jobs :-)

  • ARM Cortex-A8 port of RISC OS 5: first screenshot
    An ambitious attempt to port the RISC OS Open sources to the new-fangled ARM Cortex-A8 architecture (as used in various gadgets) has produced its first promising screenshot - although there is still plenty of work to be done. However RISCOS Ltd is still grumbling about licences, claiming that a non-Iyonix ROM image from ROOL sources can't be released. Meanwhile, RISC OS Open has joined an ARM community programme to boost its profile among other developers.
