RISC OS SouthWest Show 2015

Posted by Jeffrey Lee on 21:10, 11/2/2015 | ,
Saturday the 21st of February, a little under 10 days from now, is the date of this year's SouthWest show, to be held at its usual location of the Webbington Hotel near Weston- super-Mare.
A joint venture between R-Comp and Orpheus Internet, exhibitors are set to include:The big attention grabbers this year are likely to be R-Comp themselves, who are set to officially launch their new "ARMX6" computer (formerly known as the ARMini.MX). Based on the Freescale i.MX 6 SoC, by all accounts it's set to take the crown of the most powerful RISC OS computer currently available. Or for those working on a budget, it's also expected that there'll be plenty of Raspberry Pi 2's available from CJE - a perfect machine to take along to the Raspberry Jam area within the show.
Check out the show website for further details.

ROOL will be demonstrating RISC OS running on the Pi model 2 and will be selling newly revised printed copies of the Style Guide (actually they were held up at the printers so will be posted F.O.C. to those that bought them at the show). An updated Raspberry Pi SD card image was also on sale, and is now available from the ROOL download site. It runs on all models of the Pi, including the Compute Module/IO Board and the model 2 B.

Although Richard Keefe was not exhibiting, he was there and said that he hoiped to get the next release of Impression-X (which would be about 50% 32-bitted where the last release was 40%) out for Wakefield. It would have about 20 bug fixes as well. The next task on his list was to get a web site up and running to descrive Impression-X and how to purchase it.

The ARMX6 computer was on sale at the show - an excellent fast and stable machine. This is the first machine which is robust enough to serve as a replacement for the Iyonix.
