On RISC OS 5 pictured running on ARM Cortex-A8 kit:

Aemulor would be a bit on the slow side on a RiscPC, wouldn't it? IMO the more important aspect is that it's showing a more flexible version of RO than we've had before, which could conceivably end up closing the fork, especially if RO6 features start getting ported (RO6 is definitely nicer to use than 5, I've not tried the latest ROOL release yet).

Only just heard about this. This is very sad news, and my condolences go out to all his friends and family.

On What should be the platform's priority for 2009?:

The problem with throwing away the decrepit old stuff is that you've then got a shiny new OS but no software for it, which makes getting people to use it almost as hard as it is to get them using the decrepit old mess.

On The web in 2009: Your thoughts:

It's great for doing stuff that couldn't be done without it, but that's all. Too much shiny rubbish where none is needed (especially where it doesn't work without it) is just a PITA.

Wow, Calculon, has RISC OS been sleeping with your wife or something? That was all rather vitriolic.
