RiscOS and the A9home

Postby Rhakios » Tue Nov 20, 2007 5:47 pm

I was reading about this device recently, seems interesting-ish, but a little pricey perhaps. Anyway, you can find them here if you want to.

I'm sure Mike has one already ;)

Ooh, I wish! I've just bought an Eee so that's my gadget spending done for the next 12 months :-) That said, I do have an A7000 kicking around up north.

I am impressed by the longevity of the RISC OS community -- it's a pretty dated OS in many respects, but still seems to keep a bunch of people happy. And I have a great fondness for the smooth stone-type theme...

You mean you have to buy the things you review!!!? I would have thought Asus could have stretched to sending LXF (the foremost Linux magazine in the UK) a review machine, what a bunch of meanies. :x

They did send a review unit, but I liked it so much I bought one for myself :-)

Sorry folks but to me the A9home will always mean a really big diversion.

It would be helpful if the VirtualAcorn "windows" emulator actually worked in Linux....it doesn't...under emulation...nor via XEN..or any other virtualisation (except aparently...Mac Parallels). Bugger.

Well, there's http://arcem.sourceforge.net which runs RISC OS 3.10, and http://b-em.bbcmicro.com/arculator/ which evidently runs RISC OS 4.
