RISC OS 4 has been continously developed since it's launch!

ROL have been adding both new front facing features and doing a lot of work to the backend of their branch of RISC OS. A version of this also runs on the only RISC OS hardware currently in production. Assuming another company comes along and wishes to use it,then more new hardware will could appear.

Castle released the Iyonix, a good successor to the Risc PC, but then didn't particularly do anything else to their branch of the OS. The only reason anything is happening to RO5 now is because of the ROOL initiative. If CTL had followed ROL's approach, RISC OS 5 could be much more feature rich than it currently is.

  • Your thoughts on ROL's Select 5i1
    Following the release of Select 5i1, powered by RISC OS 6.14, by RISCOS Ltd, what do you make of its new features - the headliners being a 64K colour mode and the ability to slide sub-menus to the left if a menu is opened too close to the right-hand edge of the desktop.
