Having very recently acquired Castle Technology, and therefore the rights to RISC OS itself, RISC OS Developments Ltd has made people sit up and take notice yet again – after last year doing the same when it announced itself to the world, with the news that it had successfully secured funding for a then unspecified RISC OS project.

If you were unable to attend the RISC OS London Show, during which the company’s Richard Brown gave one of the talks – and in so doing packed the room set aside for the theatre and all but emptied the main hall – then you might want to know a little more, and you may even have a question or two. In which case, why not pop along to the next RISC OS User Group of London (ROUGOL) meeting, at which Richard will be talking?

As this year’s Wakefield Show drew near, news emerged of a new company – RISC OS Developments Ltd – formed by R-Comp’s Andrew Rawnsley and Orpheus Internet’s Richard Brown, with an extra theatre slot set aside for Richard to explain why the company was set up, what it’s purpose is (to a certain extent; full details were, and still are, subject to a non-disclosure agreement), and how people could help.

Mentioned at the tail-end of that R-Comp press release was a mention of RISC OS Developments Ltd – and no, I didn’t forget to mention it because of the limited time I have, I deliberately chose to separate it out. It’s only a paragraph, so I may as well just quote it in full:

If all that wasn’t enough for you, the Wakefield show will be the event where we unveil our new joint venture (with Richard Brown of Orpheus and others) – RISC OS Developments Ltd. A massive project for the benefit of all modern RISC OS users, this exciting new venture is our commitment to the future of our beloved platform/operating system.

Exciting times – see you at the show!

If you haven’t yet voted, why not do so now?

The RISC OS Awards poll for 2017 has been open now since mid-March and will be coming to a close in a couple of weeks time. As such, now is an ideal time to take another look at some of the alternative nominations people have made if they felt something other than the options on offer deserve to win in any given category.

If you have yet to vote, please do so as soon as possible in order to your vote to be counted. Don’t forget that this is a good way for you to help highlight those things in the RISC OS world – both people, and products – that you think need to be highlighted.
