Tom Williamson of Wi-Fi Sheep will be the guest speaker at the next meeting of the RISC OS User Group of London – which will once again be taking place online, via Zoom.

The subject of Tom’s presentation will be RISC OS Direct, the distribution (or distro) of the OS for the Raspberry Pi (and a version available for use on Windows, MacOS, and Linux via RPCEmu) put together in conjunction with RISC OS Developments Ltd.

Based on the standard build from RISC OS Open Ltd, the Direct distro benefits from a wider selection of bundled applications and other niceties, and is designed to make the operating system both easier and more attractive for potential new users to try out. It doesn’t end just with the disc image, though; a series of introductory videos is also being produced by Tom, to provide a staged tutorial into using the OS, the standard applications, and so on.

The meeting will take place on Monday, 20th July, 2020, starting at 7:45pm (and available to log into from 7:30pm).

The venue offers a range of food and drink, with the exact choices depending on what you have available in your own kitchen, so everyone should be catered for. It’s incredibly easy to find, and you shouldn’t need any maps or directions; you should know where your computer can be found, and if it’s a laptop you can take the meeting with you to the most comfortable chair you have.

The only additional information you will need are the meeting’s ID and password (or link with that information embedded) – for that you need to contact ROUGOL if you wish to join.
