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

While I was at secondary school our IT labs only had Acorns and I had an Amiga at home, so the first time I got to use a Windows PC was when I went to college aged 16. I remember thinking at the time how backwards the PCs with DOS/Win3.11 were compared to the Acorn and even my Amiga A500 which was about 5 years old at that point.

Now if only Acorns fortunes had been different and they could have spent the last 25 years developing RISCOS, I doubt we would have to put up with POS that is Windows 10.
