What RISC OS games have you been playing in Lockdown?

Posted by Mark Stephens on 07:06, 12/6/2020 |

What is your current RISC OS setup? (Steve Fryatt)

The left-hand monitor is attached to the Titanium seen under the desk to the left; the one on the right is connected to several other systems: a PC running Linux (out of shot to the right), the RiscPC on the right under the desk and a couple of Beagle and Pandaboards which are in and out of use for testing, attending shows and the like.

Which is your favourite RISC OS text editor?

Posted by Mark Stephens on 07:39, 21/4/2020 |
 
We are very lucky on the RISC OS platform to have !Edit built into the OS and two excellent editors in Zap and StrongED. Both have their fans and both are very capable.

The picture is of my home office. Under the 27" monitor is my main RISC OS
machine an ARMx6 Mini.m and my main Raspberry Pi, a 4B with fanshim, both
are sitting sitting on their own SATA SSDs. My other RISC OS machine, an
Iyonix sits under the desk, and is attached to the monitor via VGA, they
all drive it at 2560x1440.

What is your favourite RISC OS font?

Posted by Mark Stephens on 07:19, 14/4/2020 |
 
One of the big attractions for the RISC OS platform for me has always been the availability of excellent high-quality font families and fun fonts. RISC OS led the way with its built in fonts - I think I was persuaded to abandon my long-standing loyalty to Commodore machines after seeing what you could do with !Edit, !Draw and the built-in fonts.
