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!

Yer, the load/save was the best in any OS. I've felt for some time the desktop should do load/save dialogs and processes communicate with the desktop via pipes/socket. That way you can have Explorer like extensions without injecting code into every process that opens a file dialog. It also means you can do things like proper Rox file dialogs for all apps without them need to even be recompiled. Should be part xdg standard. :-)
