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!

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.


Agreed. ROX doesn't provide anything close to the full RISC OS experience. Just like adding a dock and theme to Windows and Linux can't turn them into Mac OS X.
