The thing about RISC OS at the moment is the lack of true multitasking (much debated over the years but this aspect of Windows is much nicer), and its fragility - poke the wrong place and the whole thing falls over - not what you want in an embedded application. However if you make RISC OS less fragile, in even the simplest way, you will break most of the existing desktop applications and there are not developers around to fix them.
