ROX looks very interesting, but has one killer failing from the POV of RISC OS users.

It is an addon to other systems. (It is supposed to work on OS X, but I've not been able to find instructions).

What would be nice (for PCs) would be a live CD, and a bootloader that allows booting from ISOs.

Is there any scope for collaboration between the Unix Porting Project and the ROX developers. (At least in the area of making apps drag and drop, there is a common issue.)

Would it be possible/desirable to produce apps from interpreted languages (python or brandy perhaps) that work on both platforms?
