In reply to Guestx : Apologies if some of these have already been address, I was so incensed by the post I felt a need to reply immediately ;-)

As to why would someone want a RISC OS emulator on Linux, no software worth using you say? Allow to me to suggest a couple of apps and perhaps you can demonstrate what I could use under linux instead...

OvationPro - and anyone who even contemplates saying Scribus obviously hasn't extensively used the 2 packages! ArtWorks - OK Inkscapes pretty good, and XaraLX is coming along nicely, so expect this one to moot pdq. TechWriter - Nothing (and I do mean nothing) on any platform comes close to TW for Technical WP, and it's structured approach to standard WP is by far my prefered method of document processing (although the later is more subjective than the former) Photodesk - Again perhaps not top compared to Gimp, but massively easier to use (and imho far more fun to use)

And that's not to mention smaller apps - like stronged, draw etc..

That's just a few off the top of my head, I still believe there are many more - and looking at the list perhaps MW and DP should join forces and single handedly take of Document and Drawing solutions on all platforms across the globe ;-)

  • Martin Avison named as new Organizer developer
    RISC OS software developer Martin Avison was today unveiled as the coder working on new versions of life management package Organizer. Originally written by Chris Morison, the software was handed over to Nigel Willmott to manage and find Organizer a new developer. Announcing a new website for the package, Nigel said: "It's been a steep learning curve both for me as a software publisher, and for Martin in finding his way around approaching 30,000 lines of code, but we hope an initial new version will be ready for release very soon."
