There are a number of reasons to visit the Southwest Show, which takes place in just under two weeks time on Saturday, 25th February, at the Arnos Manor Hotel in Bristol – and now there’s another.
As well as a chance to talk to the people behind the various companies and organisations, the people who write the software, the people running user groups – as well as other users in general who also visit the show – there’s an added incentive from RISC OS Developments Ltd.
The company, which was originally founded a number of years ago with the aim of producing a new web browser that could better cope with the modern web, is offering a free copy of Iris, that very browser, to everyone who attends the show.
The ultimate goal has always been to release the Webkit-based browser free of charge, but currently Iris is not yet ready for its final release, and is only generally available (via !Store) as a beta version for a small price, which helps fund its development.
To claim your copy of the browser on the day, simply pop along to the RISC OS Developments stand for a chat and to collect a free voucher, which will allow you to download Iris from !Store without paying a penny.
