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!

Can't wait to try it on my RasPi, it will be my first encounter with RiscOS. ;) And I'm glad the development of RiscOS is still going, we need alternatives to the common OSes.

I just found what it seems a nice ARM platform, reasonably priced and it seemed to me it might be a good fit for RiscOS and similar OSes. The ODROID-X.

Very nice platform! Personally can't wait to have more choice than the standard x86 platforms.

If you can't wait for your first encounter with RISC OS in general (RasPi or not), your PC works too (via emulation - all required in the comments of the above article about RPi of Thom http://www.osnews.com/thread?520050 )

But don't have too high hopes, it's not really an alternative to more modern operating systems - that said, it is quite charming and fun to try out.
