I had wondered about the filing system actually. The current one, for all that it may have been a nice system when it came out, is a pain for compatability.

It may even be good for riscos to be forced onto a FAT file system. I'm vaguely aware that its flawed and outdated, but also that it is, as you say, the fs of choice for flash memory where the problems with it account for little.

Obviously this would also be a lot of work, but were it to happen I feel it would be removing an important obstacle to file compatability (This is based off limited knowledge of the issue though, so may be of no consequence).

  • The ARM Club disbands after 18 years
    The ARM Club, which has organised shows and provided support and products to RISC OS users since 1990, has closed its doors and stopped publishing its Eureka magazine. Its committee members agreed to stop taking on new club members after membership figures went into free fall and no one was willing to help run the organisation. Archive has agreed to take on Eureka subscribers and their first issue, edition 21:11, is due to arrive in the post by Monday.
