    Acorn to return to market???

    http://www.reghardware.co.uk/2006/05...puters_reborn/

    Am I the only one who finds the concept of an Acorn machine running Windows or anything other than RiscOS a little disturbing? :P

    It looks quite nice and the inclusion of StarOffice is a nice idea

    As I have been keeping an eye on the Risc OS scene for some time, I can tell you that it is not yet known who this company is. The original rights to the Acorn name and logo are still with element 14. See drobe for more details: http://www.drobe.co.uk

    If it doesn't run RISC OS what's the point?

    It's not like the UK doesn't have any screwdriver and rebadge merchants.

    They are down at CTO, found out the other day, got a Hardware guy down there and they are going to try and get the full lowdown to me ASAP so I can get the real facts on them

    To revive an old thread, Acorn Computers has been recently established. As some of you may know, RISC OS is currently being ported to new hardware, including the Touchbook by Always Innovating. The previous (laptop reseller) Acorn Computers has been dissolved.
