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!

If you don't care about this stuff, then why do you even read items like this? I'm not trolling - I'm genuinely curious. I don't get where the motivation comes from.

I don't see his comment like that, don't really feel your question (as stated) is warranted, Thom - jabjoe was one of the relatively few RISC PC home users, and clearly quite into it; he stayed that way for a while. His insight is valuable / why it needs to be only praise?

(and I don't even agree with him about RISC OS drag'n'drop overuse nostalgia ;p ...especially since the bearable parts of it are mostly available in modern systems)
