VirtualAcorn taken over by 3QD Developments

Posted by Andrew Duffell on 17:06, 31/8/2004 | , , ,
 
VirtualAcorn, the RISC OS emulator for Windows will be handled exclusively by 3QD Developments Ltd from 1st September 2004.

3QD was set up by Aaron Timbrell in 1994 as the design arm of iSV products, and has more recently been working as a sub-contractor for various companies. In July 2004 3QD became a limited company.

Aaron told TIB "3QD Developments Ltd will take over sales and all technical support for VirtualAcorn products as well as publish future upgrades."
Unsurprisingly, there are no address or phone number changes although customers should note that the ordering details on the VirtualAcorn website have changed slightly.

"New versions of VirtualRPC-SE and VirtualRPC-Adjust will shortly be available as free upgrades for existing customers, these upgrades will reflect the change of status of VirtualAcorn."

Shoot the proof reader, because there's a mistake on the 4th line.

Hmm, I do hope that the 'Portions Copyright Arm Ltd' is nothing to do with ARMs GPLed ARMulator processor emulator source ... else RedSquirrel/VA are going to get a spanking.

That assumes that they shouldn't be using it.

If they are using it, then they need to release the source of VA/RS under the GPL. That's their obligation if they used GPL code in their program. Of course this is probably completely bogus argument, if they didn't use the ARMulator source in the first place ;)

Yeah why not start some completely unfounded speculation about the GPL, that'll be good for the market! :/

If you think VRPC is good for the market.

Of course ARM could license the same code to VRPC under different terms.

Could we stop talking about GPL violations? We don't have a pipe fat enough to withstand another Slashdotting in the new location ;)
