|About me:||I first got into RISC OS when I was 5 with the BBC Master they had at school. I then moved onto using A5000's during the first 2 years of Middle School age 8-9. When I was in my final year at Middle and right upto half way through High School I used RISC PC's, age 10-13. At 13 I got a Windows PC (which I now dispise), at the time I thought it was great. Around August 2005 I found Drobe.co.uk and some other sites and was shocked to find RISC OS still going. Since then my intrest in RISC OS has grown and grown.
Though RISC OS is and will always be my platform of choice I do alot of fiddling aorund with Ubuntu and promoting it to friends and family(one successfull conversion so far[who has gone on to show others] :D lets hope RISC OS can be like this one day). Looking forward to seeing the improvements to SSI RISC OS applications, maybe even contribute with the coding in a year or two.
I write two articles or RISC OS Now, the first one being 'A Newbies Diary' which grew into 'A Students Diary', and also a new Web Development one, teaching people to create web pages and sites, also dealing with keeping up with constant changing modern web standards.|
