RISC OS "Paul Middleton just emailed to let us know that RISC OS SelectInfo 4 Issue 2 is now available to download to any RISC OS Select subscriber who renewed their subscription on or after January 1st 2006. In the PR, Paul Middleton says: "Select 4 and its underlying RISC OS Six technology represents over 10 man years of development which has taken RISC OS 4 from its 26 bit version to its new fully 32 bit neutral source version.""

...but is RISC OS even remotely relevant for anything but the most sworn enthusiast these days? Just asking.

Thing is.. many of us are new to these alternative operating systems... and don't really know how they are being used.

I think it is perfectly fine to ask these sorts of questions (even with a trolling tone). Just maybe somebody will stand up, answer the question and we'll all be better off for having had the question asked.

Btw, http://www.osnews.com/story.php/17790/The-Houses-RISC-OS-Built

I just wish people would lighten up a bit.

What relevance has this to the article in question? RISC OS Select 4 Issue 2 is available for RISC OS users, not Windows users with an urge to mock niche operating systems.
