RISC OS "RISC OS Open are very pleased to announce the official release of RISC OS for the Raspberry Pi, 'RISC OS Pi'. This is a watershed moment for RISC OS and represents the culmination of many months of hard work from a whole community of developers, testers and other contributors. It also means the Raspberry Pi can now boast support for the quick, compact, original ARM-based operating system." This is absolutely fantastic news. I'm going to try this on my Pi later this week.

http://www.riscosopen.org/forum/forums/5/topics/466?page=5#posts-12... is worth looking at.

Also, this: http://www.riscos.info/pipermail/rpcemu/2012-October/001738.html

Baseline is 177868, on a RiscPC with RISC OS 4.02 ROMs, and a 202 MHz StrongARM. So, the PandaBoard ES is nearly 2.5 times as fast as a 3.4 GHz Core i7 (I'm assuming Sandy or Ivy Bridge, at that clock speed - although, I'm pretty sure RPCEmu is single-threaded or nearly so, but that just makes it more fair). Actually, for that matter, a 600 MHz BeagleBoard would be faster. (The Iyonix and Raspberry Pi, on the other hand, are not.)
