RISC OS Good news for Raspberry Pi owners (ha!): the RISC OS port is progressing along nicely. So much so, in fact, that a Raspberry Pi-based RISC OS machine is in the works. Stable beta release of RISC OS for the Pi planned for September!

@Coxy

Well.. here's hoping that the sheer number of Rpi punters out there swells that number by making it a nice easy entry level for people to get a taste of it. ;)

Personally.. I think AmigaOS is the pinnacle of OS dev and has a special place in my heart. RiscOS is still nice though ;)

An OS still without memory protection (so, in a a way, without proper multitasking - it relies on good behaviour of applications) is a pinnacle of OS development for you?... O_o

I suppose the positive aspect of it is it forces you to write good code.

@Zima

Seriously dude ;) Get out of the 90's. That's when they introduced "Enforcer" .. which if you have a CPU with an mmu eg.. 020+68851 or a non-EC anything later enables mmu protection.

Yes, you can run without memory protection. No I don't think it's wise and don't. Yes, I do think that AmigaOS, VMS and OS/400 are the pinnacle of OS dev ;)
