The RISC OS Awards poll for 2016 was brought to a close on 29th February.

Those exhibitors include plenty of familiar faces at RISC OS shows, and quite a number who are new – be that to shows in general, or just this one.

And to cap all that, it seems that some of the regular attendees have asked for bigger tables. Continue reading »
