Re: AROS - in development again

This is great news. The Raspberry PI is a very inexpensive computer and this would be great for Amiga users. A next generation Amiga for everyone.

Re: Anyone Know Status on RPi Native AROS?

You might want to check one of the Amiga forums or AROS-exec. I heard there is a dev that is working on it and has a patreon page.

Re: RISC OS now under the Apache 2.0 Licence

But I must say I'm impressed. Quick booting, very responsive on a 3B, I can read my web pages served by other PC's and access t'internet. I quite like the GUI. If I can figure out how to do what I want, and if it can do it, you might have won a convert. It is great for retro gaming. That is what I ...

Re: RISC OS now under the Apache 2.0 Licence

Question : Does RISCOS still require a three-button mouse ? Everything I've found with a quick surf around to get up to speed suggests it does. Are such mice even available these day with USB interfaces ? Is it even worth going to the effort of installing it of one hasn't such a mouse ? You can use...

I was having issues with installing RISC OS on my Raspberry Pi 3, but by following instructions in another thread, I was able to install it, however, when I load certain applications, such as Netsurf, I have to press alt + break and close them as they wont load. One of the instructions was: Open !Bo...

Re: Apple eMac + Raspberry PI = Apple PI?

I'm going to scrap the project. I'm going to turn my 1280x1024 CTL LCD monitor into a all in one PC instead. It will be much easier to work with and will be much smaller. My idea (for now) is to make a Altoids case and mount it on the back until I could house the PI inside the monitor.

Re: What is the best internet browser experience ?

!Netsurf on RISC OS works well (Tested on the 256MB Model B Raspberry PI). Browsing might not be 100% smooth (some pages it is), but its much faster than what I was experiencing on Raspbian. It doesn't bog down the system so you can still run other applications. Loading images is another story. If y...

Re: Dosbox. What have you got running.

On !fastdosbox (RISC OS), I was able to run Commander Keen 1, Duke 1, and God of Thunder with out any major problems, but games like Commander Keen 4 had too many issues (unplayable ones). I might give the GNU/Linux port (Raspbian) a try.

Re: AROS (AmigaOS API-compatible)

I run AROS natively (sometimes) on my Desktop PC. Hopefully, I'll be able to do the same (natively, not Linux hosted) on my PI. This port should really boost interest in the AROS project. Good job.

Re: Aemulor - 26bit emulator for Raspberry Pi 'PreOrders

I've tried Aemulor (demo), but I was unable to get any of the 26bit games to work (I tested the free ones on Acorn Bar). I heard Aemulor is great for other software (non games). If you want to play Elite or many of the other fantastic games then you should use ArcEM.

Have you tried RISC OS (OS that isn't GNU/Linux)? It's very speedy and user friendly. You can run multiple applications at once with out any lag.
