    As this year's South West Show approaches, the exibitor list grows. Since our initial announcement about the show, we've checked with RISCOS Ltd. for the latest info.

    Posted by StevePotts on Tuesday, January 29, 2008 Read full article: 'South West Show Exhibitor list'   

    Until very recently, there were fears that 2008 would not see a show down in the South West of England.  There had been no annoucement from the usual parties involved and RISC OS users were desperate for news.  Thankfully, RISCOS Ltd. have stepped in to organise this year's RISCOS South West Show.


    Exhibitor list: RISCOS Ltd., CJE Micros, R-Comp, QercusOrpheus Internet and RISC OS Now are also rumoured to be attending, although we don't have confirmation of this.

    Given the late announcement of the show, if anyone is exhibiting and would like to be added to the above list, please add a comment to this article.


    Those keen historians amongs us will already be aware that it is approaching 10 years since Acorn Computers Ltd's. announcement which became known as Black Thursday, back in September 1998. This led to the formation of RISCOS Ltd. in January 1999 and they have now entered their 10th year of trading.

    Midlands show debrief 5836 Reads collaboration

    Having returned from the Midlands show, I thought I'd just put up a very short rundown of what I saw and did.  I didn't go prepared to write a report and didn't even take a camera, as I had rather a lot of other stuff with me upon arrival, although less upon leaving - I know that doesn't sound right, but it was for good reason.

    Posted by StevePotts on Saturday, December 01, 2007 Read full article: 'Midlands show debrief'   

    RISCOS Ltd. yesterday announced that they have completed preparation of the latest printed Programmers Reference Manual.  Entitled "The Window Manager", the new volume has been brought bang up to date with RISC OS 6 features and will be available for purchase at tomorrow's Midlands Show.


    Although dated a few days ago, today saw the publication of a Joint Press Release from RISCOS Ltd. and RISC OS Open Ltd. on the Comp.Sys.Acorn.Announce usenet group.  This press release talks about co-operaton between the two companies and sounds positive for the future of RISC OS development.


    December will very soon be upon us, and whilst that is a sign of urgency for many people in the UK to start their Christmas Shopping, there is also another important event with the start of December - The RISC OS Christmas Show 2007.
