RISC OS Sometimes, on a rather boring and run-of-the-mill Monday, I get news in the submission queue which just puts a gigantic smile on my face. We've talked about the Raspberry Pi before on OSNews, and other than reporting that everything's on track for a Christmas launch, it has also been announced that the Raspberry Pi will be able to run... RISC OS. A British educational ARM board running RISC OS? We have come full circle. And I couldn't be happier. Update: Theo Markettos emailed me with two corrections - Markettos isn't actually a representative of the Raspberry Pi Foundation, and the quoted bits are transcribed, they're not Markettos' literal words. Thanks for clearing that up!

You have no idea just how excited I am about the Raspberry Pi

Oh my Thom, yes I jolly well do! ;) This is the most exciting news in ages for me.

I started programming on a BBC Model A (that's right A, not B) and have always loved Acorn's OS's. LIke you though I could never justify the price of a dedicated RISC OS machine. Now though...

Raspberries and RISCOS and Linux, oh my!
