"The experience of using RISC OS natively is enjoyed by many in our platform, but simply not everyone can get by with just RISC OS". True. Use the best platform for the task at hand. The only trouble is that customers of Windows-based emulation machines are buying PC hardware, not RISC OS hardware. That means there is less development money for true ARM hardware, which is the only thing that will push the market forward. I challenge anyone to inform us all of an OS that has survived and flourished as a capable, modern computing platform with active software developers, via being available soley on emulation. Because if everyone buys Windows machines instead of ARM ones, that is what will happen.

  • South East 2008 theatre talk videos now online
    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.
