ROOL are very happy to announce the immediate availability of two different ROOL-branded USB sticks to buy from the ROOL store.
These sticks represent a proud milestone for RISC OS Open; we’ve been working towards creating a stand-alone RISC OS solution for Windows and Mac users since we formed in 2006. Thanks to everyone who made this possible!
RISC OS emulation (Windows, Mac, Linux)
This stick is specifically designed for Windows, Mac and Linux users who want to have a RISC OS emulation solution. You do not need any other bits and bobs and the Windows and Mac emulators have been pre-built and pre-configured. Just plug the stick in and follow the instructions for your system.
This stick includes all of the disc-based software found on the “Boot stick” (below). Please note: networking support has not been configured/enabled in these emulators.
Boot stick for native RISC OS hardware
This stick is Filecore formatted, meaning it can be read by native RISC OS machines, including the Iyonix, Beagleboard, PandaBoard, Raspberry Pi to name but a few. It contains the main RISC OS boot sequence, applications and utilities, as well as a host of third-party applications and other goodies.
Because it has been Filecore formatted, you will not (normally) be able to read from this USB stick on Windows, Mac or Linux machines.
Both USB sticks include a collection of bonus material, including third-party applications (such as StrongED, SparkFS, AWViewer and many more), source code for RISC OS and other ROOL goodies including a large set of high-quality backdrop images.
