And once again it seems like to me one of the best chances of getting quality sftware ported is doing what Martin Weurthner is doing. I have just got interested again with RiscOS, not that I ever deserted this platform or operating system I just found myself using the PC for more things, because of the interesting times ahead with RiscOS 5 port to CortexA8 spearheading it for me. I say that you have to be in to win. Now all you TRUE RiscOS fans out there put your 10 or 15 quids worth in and hopefully we will get more programmers stepping up to the mark to do some essential porting / app writing. Me personally am not a good enough programmer to get involved at a commercial level but if I was I would. I don't mean to sound blunt but RiscOS is a superb OS and yes it does need work on it but it definatly deserves to survive on the desktop and any other devices. Is there a webpage out there for RiscOS users to submit ideas, bit like a discussion board, then anyone interested can take there pick. Long live RiscOS.
Just like to applaud Jeffery Lee and say thanks for giving me some belief again. Nice one
Iyonix emulator mulled by developer The open source machine emulator GXEmul could be used to create an Iyonix emulator for RISC OS users and testers of ROOL ROM images, says one prominent coder. GXEmul already includes emulation of Intel's 80321 chip, the processor used in the Iyonix, and can run NetBSD on hardware similar to Castle's computer. Anyone interested in taking a closer look can apply John-Mark Bell's initial patch to the source code. 13 comments, latest by diomus on 23/11/08 2:29PM. Published: 20 Nov 2008
