On Acorn celebs to mark 30th anniversary with reunion:

@Fuzzy: Yes, and I happen to use Windows at work everyday, so I demand to be allowed to go to Microsoft Christmas parties!

@Stew: Shame. :-( I wonder how many of us that turned off the lights will be going...

On Ex-Pace staff back RISC OS Open Ltd:

Well, I'm horribly confused. I must have worked for Pace in an alternate universe where the IPTV division was run by Andrew Clifforth and the engineering manager was Steve Cormie.

On RISC OS 5 modernisation to cost millions:

Laughable. To suggest Castle can viably survive in the ARM embedded market isn't just a pipedream, it's the dream of a naive optimist. There are already companies with 10x the staff in each of the possible embedded ARM markets, and there's no way in hell Castle will be able to compete.

Especially if they're trying to do it with RISC OS. See Palm/Netgear/Sigma Designs/HP/Compaq for details.

On Castle opens RISC OS future wishlist:

Let's face it. Divergence now is going to kill RISC OS stone. cold. dead.

You're going to get apps developers having to make a choice, or support both, as jbm rightly points out. If the API differs enough that various RO features start to differ on a user level, you're very quickly going to end up in a situation similar to a Linux kernel running varying systems on top (a la Gnome/KDE/etc.). Linux has a big enough userbase to support this. RO simply doesn't.

No matter how you look at it, this is going to cause one side or another to fall over unless they have a meaningful dialogue.

  • Adventures with a Lego-cased A7K web server
    Having previously built desktop and laptop cases of out Lego bricks, model building Peter Howkins has turned his attentions towards crafting a slim box to slid his A7000 into a rack, alongside other rackmount servers. Having pieced together the housing, Peter puts a legacy RISC OS machine through its paces as an internet-facing server.
