In reply to bluenose, I don't want RISC OS for free , I want a free RISC OS, there's a difference (beer vs. speech).

I would buy a MacMini to put Linux on because I want Apple-quality hardware that's small and cheap, I had considered getting an A9 and putting Debian ARM on it too, as it beats the Mini on size, but not price or power, the same goes for a Shuttle.

The bottom line is that there may be nothing wrong with the OS, be that RISC OS or MacOSX (although I'm no longer particularly impressed with either) but if I can't do with it what I want, then what's the point? I'd prefer the hardware and a truly open OS, not half-open like Darwin/ROOL.
