A thought that has just occured to me is that although current ARMs being aimed at embedded devices means we don't get nice fast ones that would make wonderful RISC OS machines, if they weren't any good at embedded would we even have RISC OS any more? If ARMs hadn't found such a niche it was very suited to the development of them might have stopped years ago, in direct competition to the x86.
Wind tunnel study RiscPC turns up on telly Many of you were eagle-eyed enough to spot that a RiscPC appeared to be controlling a wind tunnel at the University of Kingston in London - which was featured in Richard Hammond's BBC 2 series Engineering Connections on the evening of Sunday, February 15. The particular episode looked into the A380 Super Jumbo. Let us know if you can shed any more light on the RiscPC's involvement at the university. 5 comments, latest by Lobey on 15/3/09 11:43PM.
