RISC OS "RISC OS Open are very pleased to announce the official release of RISC OS for the Raspberry Pi, 'RISC OS Pi'. This is a watershed moment for RISC OS and represents the culmination of many months of hard work from a whole community of developers, testers and other contributors. It also means the Raspberry Pi can now boast support for the quick, compact, original ARM-based operating system." This is absolutely fantastic news. I'm going to try this on my Pi later this week.

Gah, I forgot to clarify that that platform isn't supported under RISC OS, either.

PandaBoard ES is still the fastest.

I'm guessing the next port target that will happen is to the Arndale Board, which uses the Exynos 5 Dual. (So, same as the Nexus 10 and Series 3 Chromebook.)

So I wonder, did anybody compare it (I guess there is some benchmarking software) to RISC OS running under emulation? (I suppose RPCEmu is the most readily available option? And generally, emu could be more handy in many cases... http://www.osnews.com/thread?520050 )

http://www.riscosopen.org/forum/forums/5/topics/466?page=5#posts-12... is worth looking at.

Also, this: http://www.riscos.info/pipermail/rpcemu/2012-October/001738.html

Baseline is 177868, on a RiscPC with RISC OS 4.02 ROMs, and a 202 MHz StrongARM. So, the PandaBoard ES is nearly 2.5 times as fast as a 3.4 GHz Core i7 (I'm assuming Sandy or Ivy Bridge, at that clock speed - although, I'm pretty sure RPCEmu is single-threaded or nearly so, but that just makes it more fair). Actually, for that matter, a 600 MHz BeagleBoard would be faster. (The Iyonix and Raspberry Pi, on the other hand, are not.)
