rjek's right. I've an R140 and RISC iX was supplied on the hard drive. There's a RISC OS !RISCiX application that will boot into RISC iX, replacing RISC OS. Given that the 50-oddMB Rodime ST506 hard drive the machine shipped with was nearly completely filled with RISC iX, with a tiny RISC OS partition, and using squashed binaries at that, it was never shipped in ROM instead.

A 66MB hard drive? Given ST506 only went up to 56MB I guess that's SCSI.

  • RISC OS 5 pictured running on ARM Cortex-A8 kit
    Picture exclusive - This grainy photograph shows a port of RISC OS 5, sourced from the RISC OS Open project, running on a Beagleboard - a device powered by a 600MHz ARM Cortex-A8 processor with a built-in graphics chip. The port, developed by Jeffrey Lee with help from Uwe Kall and ROOL staff, is seen as a major breakthrough for the shared-source project as it proves the OS can be ported to new hardware without the need for a large team of engineers.
