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!

The idea of the Raspberry Pi isn't to turn children into good little programming worker bees, its to get them interested in programming. It really doesn't matter which system grabs that interest as enthusiasm is very transferable.

True enough but I'm not so sure that RiscOS is going to succeed at getting the attention of todays kids.
