RISC OS And it seems as if another minor, barely-alive operating system will become encumbered by legal bickering between two small companies. The RISC OS scene, which is already a tangled and complicated mess of companies, version number teasing and incompatible versions, might be torn apart even further because RISCOS Ltd might take legal action trying to prevent RISC OS Open Ltd from releasing a RiscPC compatible ROM from the RISC OS 5 shared source project. Should you feel confused, you needn't worry: so does everyone else.

Memory addressing!! That's it!! I knew it was something silly like that.

Mind you, the Acrchies were always billed (to us students who used them by our teachers/professors) as being "32bit", as I guess the actual processor ran in a 32bit mode.
