Hi all!

I am a Swedish computer user interested in operatingsystems and retrocomputing/computers in general.

I have starten to look at the Raspberry Pi 2 B for using it as my first RISC OS computer.

Do the RISC OS geeks here at The icon bar have any tips and trix for a newbee? smile

Use the RC14 SD card image from the ROOL site (the Raspberry Pi foundation downloads page redirects here). That gives you 2GB storage on the SD card with lots of software preloaded.

The !Store application is also supplied which gives access to a selected list of free and commercial software.

The NutPi addon SD card from ROOL is extremely good value - not everything on it works on the model 2 Pi though.

The URL http://www.svrsig.org/HowTo.htm gives an (unfinished) tutorial on the various platforms that now exist for RISC OS, including the Pi.

I would also check out the ROOL forums (on the ROOL site) and maybe subscribe there as well, if you haven't already.

If you're going to learn some BBC BASIC, I'd recommend getting StrongEd:

Sweden is turning into something of a RISC OS hotbed - I just shipped an ARMX6 out there last week, to someone completely different (a company actually). Here's to the on-going RISC OS revival smile
