On Watch the trailer of BBC's Acorn versus Sinclair history docu-drama:

OK, so it's a bit tongue in cheek, as everything insists to be these days when it comes to retro.

I will be watching it, but why does TV need to be so "Easy watching" these days (Yeah, I do know, rhetorical question and all that stuff)

On Acorn celebs to mark 30th anniversary with reunion:

Well no mention of allowing anyone to attend who *wasn't* an Acorn employee but would like to come and celebrate Acorn and RISC OS. Does anyone who reads this website have any contact with the organisers?

Yes I know, I could do it myself and maybe we should all start firing emails off to them to show that us RISC OS users still exist.

On Maudlin over RISC OS:

I would also like to say great article.

It makes me think back, in the early 90s I worked for a computer educational unit for a local council where we provided support for local schools. The unit wrote software and kept the hardware going and *everthing* was Acorn. Back then these machines where light years ahead of anything PCs had to offer (Plenty were still running DOS).

Many years later all the schools had switched over to Windows PCs that wernt as sleek as the Acorns I was so fond of using, what went wrong? The government wanted everyone to be computer literate but failed to keep supporting an English OS in the schools so the rot set in and Acorns became a niche thing (Due to cost of the hardware I suspect).

Im glad we still have a community here and stuff is still being written, but RISC OS seems to continue to lag behind other OSes. Anyhow its great to see that people like Martin are still writing software for our beloved OS.

  • 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.
