"ROLF is a GUI framework using the framebuffer device on Linux to provide a look and feel similar to that of the RISC OS operating system."

At the moment, it runs from a virtual console in Linux with no X running, and you have to be careful it doesn't make the system unusable (although I've come up with a simple watchdog timer mechanism that seems to usually be successful).

Andrew Flegg (Jaffa): "...open sourcing RISC OS is a good idea for users..."

That would be my opinion, as well, but I'm not interested in any of the RO code.
