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."

Member since:

hardware is now open sourced,computer reservations systems such as Amadeus,Galileo,sabre and worldspan should follow, they proberly won't as the end-user has no real use for it.

There are some compilers by Portland Group and intel that are not open source, they should.

Endorphin ( should be open source
