Did someone not make available WIMP2 or somthing like that which swapped from being co-operative multitasking to preemptive.
For starters would it not be an idea to investigate if this could be implemented into RISC OS 5? I am sure pre-emptive multitasking would be a good start.
Would pre-emptive multitasking also not make it possible to develop further and dole out diffrent tasks to diffrent cores? (ok so not multi-thread but at least it would be able to carry out more than one thing at the same time).
Just wondered as not sure if that is workable but as RISC OS 5 is open source and development seems to be going forward what are peoples thoughts? Is pre-emptive a good idea?
