On Prototype Acorn Unix-powered A680 lands on eBay:

I'm curious as to why anyone would want this now. What software will run on it? Or is it merely a toy for RISC OS fans who also happen to be unix geeks (like me!)?

On Drobe Awards 2008: The results:

I'm surprised that VRPC for Mac didn't win best commercial product. Perhaps there aren't enough of us using it. Not that I can have any complaint about Artworks and Techwriter - two programs I use a lot.

On Using ROL's 4.02 ROM image in Linux RPCEmu:

helpful,

Don't keep us in suspense! I'm getting a Linux Asus eee PC for Christmas and would like to run RPCemu on it. Did you manage to get it to work?

On Who would want an A9home PDA?:

In reply to rjek:

It's certainly true that using a screen keyboard is more tiring than using a conventional one, but that wouldn't bother me: my use of a PDA for word processing is almost exclusively short bursts of writing during my dinner hour at work.

On Who would want an A9home PDA?:

In reply to rjek:

I don't have a plug-in keyboard for my Palm PDA: it has a small display of a keyboard that I can tap with a stylus. It works surprisingly well, and I would like to see a similar setup on a RISC OS version.

  • Prototype affordable Braille display in development
    A low-cost computer-controlled Braille board has been prototyped by a RISC OS-using university student. Undergraduate Edward Rogers hopes to sell his completed units for as little as 200 quid each to schools and families to allow more blind children to continue learning Braille. And he said he wanted to launch his venture using RISC OS-powered kit before offering a package for other platforms.
