Marking the anniversary

Notwithstanding the occasional misunderstandings in this piece, I think it's great to see the anniversary being reported on. This article has generated a fair amount of nostalgic comments here, which are informative in themselves.

Yes, it's a shame that the incredible developments of the last 3 years (shared source RO5 on new hardware) aren't mentioned, but perhaps they're being considered as the subject of a separate article.

And, regarding the acronym style, does that even extend to renaming "Chris's Acorns" to "Chris' Acorns"?

And didn't they also have to compete against CD players that Christmas?

WTF?

"Unsung Heroes"?

Presumably until tomorrow's Part 2, when their recent Fellowship awards from San Jose's Computer History Museum will be noted!

The ceremony was last Saturday

which coincided with the annual Wakefield RISC OS Show - perhaps the time difference precluded any sort of live streaming from the event!

Re: Which version?

In addition to the Ubuntu port, there's the possibility of porting RISC OS to the AC100.

RE: people attending

There's been some talk of seeing whether Jason Kridner of TI can vist this show:

If this comes to anything, there may be an announcement or simply just a surprise visit!

In any case, you might as well attend yourself for old times' sake!

RE: Which pretty much mandates that you have to have a working Acorn box (with USB) to hand

Fret not, this *isn't* the case!

RISC OS can read FAT formatted sticks fine. Just follow the instructions :-)
