    Operating System: Previewing RISC OS 4+ and Select - 2 - Introduction

    Monday, August 20, 2001 - 11:00 PM, (4640 Reads)

    RISC OS Select is the name given to the means by which the new Operating System, RO4+, will be distributed.

    Instead of producing a version of the OS that will be set in stone for three or more years RISCOS Ltd will release the product in stages over two years. New for RISC OS the new OS will be on CD, you will need RO4 on your machine to run RO4+, and problems encountered in one version can be modified for the next.

    As RISCOS Ltd expect to issue three CDs each year the wait between issues won't be excessive.
    It's worth noting that RISCOS Ltd are not using us all as beta testers; each CD will include some beta and some release versions of software and purchasers can opt to ignore the beta software. Software in beta on one CD is likely to be in a release version on the next.

    Undoubtedly there will be enough adventurous souls who will want to explore and test the beta software and ensure the feedback to ROL for the good of us all. I can't get all my preview onto the My RISC OS site at once so it will be added over the next few weeks.

    Please feel free to comment on the story and you can also influence the order in which I submit the story by asking about RO4+ or the Select scheme in advance.
