I thought we WERE on topic :-) As I see it the fighting factions in this frankly miniscule OS war have such contrary positions and such different levels of investment (in terms of both time and folding) that a coming together is pointless, meaningless and basically very unlikely. Either stick completely with the variant with the archaic features bolted on a HAL on modern hardware, or the unarguably greatly more developed version on old dead hardware. Don't attempt to marry the two together as it's of no benefit. The real solution is to begin bringing pieces of one OS in to the other -- I absolutely do not buy the "impossible" notion from Mr Revill, at a technical level - only at a business level.

  • Classic Archimedes technical bible republished online
    A PDF conversion of the Van Somerens' formidable "Archimedes Operating System - A User's Guide" has been uploaded to the internet. Originally published in 1991, the 320-page tome revealed how the internal gubbins of the Acorn Archimedes and its operating systems (including an early RISC OS) worked - all in an easy to follow guide for novice and advanced programmers and computer hardware enthusiasts.
