Well, I was really just being flippant, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was no longer possible to distribute RISC iX legally. I imagine it depends largely on the kinds of agreements Acorn had and who took on its obligations when it was sold off - perhaps their license to distribute it had already lapsed or was non-transferable, anyway.

A mini-Groklaw for RISC OS and other Acorn stuff would be useful, if only we could get hold of the relevant contracts and agreements.
