On RISC OS-on-Linux project prepares live CD:

so is this a WINE kind of thing (run risc os apps on linux) or some sort of "use a linux kernel to boot risc os" vmware-esx kind of thing?

the "look and feel" name suggests its more like ROX (risc os theme for xwindows) and then QEMU is thrown in (allows non-x86 emulation) to totally confuse me!

should be an interesting project, especially as varpc isn't going to happen on linux.

On Apple Mac VirtualRiscPC beta on sale:

Argh, just as I'd decided not to buy a PowerBook as they don't dual boot Linux very well, along comes a Mac VARPC! Back to the decision-making process for me.....

I wonder if it will work on my regular PC that runs MacOSX under VMWare, or hopefully a Linux version will come along soon (hehe, maybe even for the PPC-based PS3 that runs Linux).

I can't believe VA even wasted their time working on a PPC version. Pretty much all Mac users I know have already ditched their G4's (dunno anyone with a G5, they're all laptop people). I'd have thought the MacIntel version would be an easy enough rebuild, but porting to PPC, wow!

On File sharing Bit Torrent client ported to RISC OS:

are there going to be enough people wanting the risc os source to make p2p distribution worthwhile? leeching of a couple of guy's 256k upload adsl is going to be a bit painful compared to a nice 100mbit pipe from an ftp server.

bittorrent is seen as being automagically much faster than web/ftp by too many people, p2p is only as useful as the popularity of the files and the upload speed of the seeders.

On VirtualRPC for Mac OS X delayed:

I call bulls*** on that entire 2nd paragraph hEgelia!

Now I wonder if I can run this under my MacOSX VMware instance on my Linux box.....
