Users of RISC OS on Titanium-based machines have the option of booting into Linux thanks to GoLinux from Elesar, suppliers of the motherboard itself. However, as shown in this video recording of Chris Hall speaking to the Midlands User Group back in September, what that gets you into – initially – is a command line system, on which a graphical user interface needs to be set up, if that’s your preference.

Back in summer, R-Comp produced a ‘graphical’ Linux disc for a customer, and they will be making such discs available at the London Show on Saturday – so armed with such a disc and Elesar’s GoLinux, Titanium users can boot into a desktop environment on Linux. Prices will vary according to the size of disc, and whether or not you have purchased either a TiMachine or Titanium support scheme subscription, but start at £35.00.
