I think the best way to experience RISC OS is by working through a tutorial involving different apps like Paint, Draw, StrongEd, Filer, etc., demonstrating how drag&drop between apps works and such stuff. The way to offer this experience over the internet, is to set up a few RISC OS machines with VNC or something similar. The CMOS would have to be write-protected, of course. And the HDD should automatically be restored from a default-image once a user is finished and logs off.

  • Will Wakefield 2009 see a new graphics card for RISC OS?
    Speculation is mounting that the Vpod, a mysterious new product pre-announced this week, could be a graphics card on a podule for RiscPC-class machines. Well-placed sources have said that the Vpod is not an April Fools joke despite it being hyped up on April 1st by Stuart Tyrrell Developments, which sells the Unipod upgrade and is linked with A9home manufacturer Advantage Six.
