RISC OS The debate over whether or not RISC OS should be open sourced took another turn this week when Peter Naulls argued that "certain parts" of the OS could be released under an open source licence. The State-side coder behind various ports including Firefox said this would ideally include "crucial parts that affect all users, even if they don't realise it, parts that can be created from scratch and made much better than the Acorn original, and parts which can managed by specific developers who already understand them well."

Its RISC OS, not RiscOS. RiscOS runs on MIPS systems and is -entirely- different.

Its the RiscPC, mind, stupid naming that makes the confusion worse.
