RISC OS Good news for Raspberry Pi owners (ha!): the RISC OS port is progressing along nicely. So much so, in fact, that a Raspberry Pi-based RISC OS machine is in the works. Stable beta release of RISC OS for the Pi planned for September!

In 1992, yes. In 2002, not really. In 2012, you are insane. Pretty much as the Amiga nuts are (I was one of those too in the '90s, though I just played games mainly....)

Given that I stopped using RISCOS at 3.7, or whatever point version was on the A7000, it's horribly dated. Crashy, due to lack of memory protection. Half the legacy apps I used when I was a kid don't even work anymore because those older machines were 26bit, not 32bit. It was truly horrible and saddening to use.

The OS metaphore is not user friendly. What if I don't want to use drag and drop? I remember it being a total PITA to use on a Floppy only system. I think saying anything other than "unique" is total BS.
