RISC OS is a computer operating system designed in Cambridge, England by Acorn. First released in 1987, its origins can be traced back to the original team that developed the ARM microprocessor. RISC OS is owned by Castle Technology Ltd.

RISC OS Open Limited (ROOL) is an organisation run on a largely voluntary basis. It is managing the process of publishing the source code to RISC OS.

Installing RISC OS

Refer to the Generic OMAP port setup information.

OMAP3

The port is reaching maturity on OMAP3 hardware such as the BeagleBoard.

OMAP4

The PandaBoard project listing contains some initial information. The Cortex A9 ROOL forum thread contains latest information on the work being done.

Further information on RISC OS

An article about running RISC OS on new hardware at The Icon Bar summarises progress and challenges as at October 2009.
