mripley:

What on earth do you expect?

RISC OS desktop users are enthusiasts and therefore are likely to be opinionated.

Please also note that it is the same few people who comment on drobe, 100 users (& ex users :-( ) maximum, out of a few thousand others out there.

RISC OS isn't fragmented really - there's a long tradition of coders going their own way here (zap vs StrongED... ;-) )

Having Firefox is a real filip for the platform - when I show others screenshots & explain the iconbar I get "you've got a firefox port? - wow!"

Oh and if you go apple - can you email the people who are writing the software and get a personal helpful reply?

However this does raise a point.

As RO5 users *why* would we change over to the later versions of RO4?

There are cool things such as not necessarily having to reboot when changing network settings, better png support, possibly being able to auto detect a monitor and possible automatic recognition of NASs.

Couldn't somebody *please* do an unbiased feature list so that RO5 owners can see if it would be worth it?

Assuming selectt on iyonix happens...

Back in the day I used to make Acorns for a living.

I remeber a meeting with Acorn about pheobe - they pulled the case out of a box & it was eww what colour is that (done by the same people that did the 1st zip drive apparently...) & then Uh Oh BGAs on the board, not good - only test we had for them at the time was to bang the board on its side at the end of the line and see if the chip fell off!

select/adjust32 - does it fully support the USB on Iyonix?

select/adjust32 - does it fully support the graphics acceleration on Iyonix?

RO4.40 may be OK for an A9 - but how much of the RO5 stuff will be implemented?

On Web browser offerings compared:

if you are running RISC OS at a proper res (i.e. a bloody high one :-) ) you have to have the browsers not taking the whole screen - O2 stand up and be pilloried.

The adjust click in browsing is a *serious* boon - tabbed browsing IHMO just doesn't work as well...

...if you are an actual RISC OS user

On Qercus says sorry for lateness:

JGZimmerle:

RISC OS5 doesn't even yet exploit the XScale to its full advantage - let alone what the graphics card may offer,,,

So the hardware is here & all we are waiting on is the drivers... :-)

On Should the TCO of RISC OS be higher?:

energy saving?!!!

x86 based machines consume 80W of electricity at least when in *standby*

& that was in 2002 - god knows what they are consuming now...

On 2005 Predictions:

2005 & RISC OS:

An active fanless Iyonix - we've discovered fanless ATX PSUs... :-)

That'll leave a couple of extracts on thermistors just in case the graphics & USBs cards are about to go up in smoke :rolleyes:

Great for watching video's and DVDs :-D

  • What should be NetSurf's priority?
    Development work on the open source NetSurf web browser project will once again be funded by Google as part of the internet giant's Summer of Code scheme. NetSurf has been accepted into this year's GSoC, which pays students to develop open source software during their holiday, under the guidance of a mentor. This year it's hoped budding engineers, who must first successfully apply for a place to work on the browser, will work on various improvements. What do you think the NetSurf team should be focusing development on?
