The show was fun, as they usually are - it's great to catch up and chat with people, even if there is the usual dose of politics and spin to deal with.

Paul's laptop's a fine achievement. With a little thought to a design, a metal basher could quite cheaply produce a "chassis" to put inside a flight case to securely fix the motherboard, battery and other support electronics, and you'd have a reasonably rugged sensible laptop. A little design polish, and it could be the product so many have been waiting years for.

    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.

  • NetSurf 2.0 release pencilled for April 2009
    The team behind the open source browser for RISC OS, Linux, AmigaOS, BeOS and other platforms start aiming for a version 2.0 release of NetSurf in time for next year's Wakefield RISC OS show. The top priority will be bug fixing and no new features will be added after mid_February to allow the programmers time to thoroughly test the software prior to the unveiling of NS 2.0.
