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!

RISCOS hasn't really changed all that much. What has changed is the underlying hardware. That's all.

Instead of all the negative points and focusing on those things that can not be done, why not focus on those things that can be done?

But that wouldn't be OSRude ^H^H^H^H News, would it?

I'll turn this one around: instead of beating a dead horse, why not buy in to a computer system that can do everything you need? No one is saying it has to be a specific platform. Pick one that does what you need, rather than a subset that is a compromise **. I love BeOS with all my heart, but I'm not about to use ArtPaint over Photoshop just to flagulate myself and be a martyr. And believe me, I compiled ArtPaint from source and *made* it work on the PowerPC architecture - more successfully that the original author (who bungled the way the add-in API linking worked for the Metrowerks PowerPC C++ compiler.)

** And if you *really* believe that is RISCOS, fair play. I hope you can cobble together enough viable software still in 5 years time.
