RISC OS Castle and RISC OS Open discuss there plans for the gradual unveiling of an open source RISC OS over the next twelve months. They explain their reasoning behind some of the source code restrictions in their licence. "Castle's Jack Lillingston opened the presentation with a brief run through of his company's products before outlining the shared source initiative - which is designed to get the source code to RISC OS 5 out into the open for free, and encourage third party developers to improve it. Steve then took over to explain more about how the project will be organised, and how they need donations to keep going."

"Problem is I don't see and cheap, fast and powerful ARM based computers out there that can't be beat in the price/performance by other CPU motherboard. "

Not as powerful as a desktop x86 machine perhaps but there is lots of nice niche hardware. PDAs, smartphones, small form factor, low power motherboards etc.
