RISC OS RISCOS Ltd has released a preview build of RISC OS 6 Select 4 for Select subscribers to download. The release came just in time for the Midlands 2006 show this weekend after the company pulled out all the stops to finish the preview package. Copies of the operating system were available on CD from the event in Wolverhampton. The preview version is expected to be the forerunner to a full bug fixed Select 4 release, which will only be available to users who have continued to renew their Select subscriptions. An announcement sent out on Friday evening read: "RISCOS Ltd are pleased to announce the immediate availability of RISC OS 6 Preview for Select subscribers. The RISC OS 6 Preview release gives RiscPC, A7000 and VirtualRPC-Adjust users an opportunity to experience recent developments within RISC OS through the Select scheme."

It might be a bit hard getting your hands on RISC OS hardware, but you might want to buy Virtual RiscPC, it's quite cheap compared to the native stuff and it'll run on a Windows PC.

CJE Micro's, a RISC OS dealer will ship hardware over to the US, although it might be a bit pricey.

Or he could just buy a nice new Iyonix.

You don't want to go down the emulated route, it is a dead end in my opinion.
