Even though I still use a RiscPC as a second computer, I am quite happy to keep it running ROS4. I honestly do not see the need for a version of ROS5 that runs on it. It would be better if the people who are going to take advantage of the shared source intiative devote their programming and engineering skills to moving the OS forward. Multicore processors appear to me to be the way silicon technology is moving, with the appearance of a dual-core XScale from Intel last year, wouldn't it be better if attention was focused on making RISC OS use similar and no doubt faster chips that will appear in the future.

South East 2008 theatre talk videos now online Didn't make to the South East 2008 show in Guildford this year? Not to worry, because on top of the usual Drobe coverage, you can now watch videos of the presentations made by RISC OS Open and RISC OS Ltd staff at the event. Recorded live at the show, the videos, in which products and projects are talked up by developers to punters, also include question and answer sessions from the floor. 13 comments, latest by rjek on 9/12/08 12:02PM.
