Jwoody:

This has been said many, many times - the reason for the time to release issue is due to legal reasons as Martin mentioned in the article.

RISC OS is from a very closed sourced background (which interestingly may not be as "one company" as was tought), open sourcing in this instance is fraught with copyright issues.

The last thing an open version of RISC OS needs is a legal battle!

Better that this is done in a controlled and careful manner.

  • ARM processors to power cute netbooks
    As so many of you have pointed out, a number of little notebook computers, which are all the rage these days, are to be powered by ARM chips, paving the way for a possible RISC OS port to such slimline devices (especially given the recent Ubuntu Linux on ARM announcement) - however there are countless ARM Linux-powered systems available already and yet there's no sign of any RISC OS port for them either...
