Roughly 30 years after its birth at UK's Acorn Computers, RISC OS 5 is going open source


I loved my trusty A3010 (the exact machine that the demo in the first youtube video was captured from).

Yes there was a lot of jealousy of the Amiga because it got all of the 'good stuff' on my part, but the 'if you want it you'll just have to code it' mentality it gave me, the fact that coding was so accessible in RISC OS (the basic doubles up as a macro assembler, although I preferred !extASM) and the fact that instruction set-wise I ended up on the right side of history all led to good things.
