RISC OS Drobe.co.uk, the premier RISC OS news website, today announced that it has entered archive mode and will no longer function as a news reporting source. The site was founded by Peter Price in 1999 and editorship was taken over by journalist Chris Williams in 2001. Chris first broke the sad news on Monday morning via usenet: "Drobe's RISC OS news service, which launched in October 1999, will sadly cease from Monday. Running the site has been so much fun over the years and the experience has been very rewarding - from the investigative pieces and tabloid tomfoolery to the libel writ threats and meeting up with users after shows. However, all good things must come to an end - if you'll forgive the cliche - and it's time to formally move on."

Desktop/ Laptop hardware on the way

At last ARM has decided to try and compete in the low end of the laptop and desktop markets.
So after years and years of running RISCOS on processors that are suitable for music players and disk controllers - it would be really nice to finally see RISCOS run on something resembling a modern desktop class processor.
