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."

Hell yes!

Wait... uhm.... I guess that was about as informative as your post ;)

Whether or not to open source it (after MYOB's post I'll just call it "it" ;) is difficult to say for me. I can't see what they would gain, and I can't see what they would lose.

But personally I'm like 60/40 in favour of open sourcing (or how it's spelled).
