RISC OS Sometimes, on a rather boring and run-of-the-mill Monday, I get news in the submission queue which just puts a gigantic smile on my face. We've talked about the Raspberry Pi before on OSNews, and other than reporting that everything's on track for a Christmas launch, it has also been announced that the Raspberry Pi will be able to run... RISC OS. A British educational ARM board running RISC OS? We have come full circle. And I couldn't be happier. Update: Theo Markettos emailed me with two corrections - Markettos isn't actually a representative of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, and the quoted bits are transcribed, they're not Markettos' literal words. Thanks for clearing that up!

If you want RiscOS chances are you really want the GUI, in which case, get stuck in with the Rox desktop.

It's a nice effort but unfortunately it doesn't change the UI of any of the applications you run, which still behave like Windows/Mac/KDE/Gnome apps, so you lose a lot of the benefits of the RISC OS GUI.

Every time I see a File Open/Save dialogue box I just want to cry at the massive waste of time (mine and the programmers) that they are :-(
