To have RiscOS running on the PI400, wouldn't you only have to change the Linux µSD for RiscOS ?
I am also tempted with a baremetal Forth system, there seems to have one under development.

And about the speed of Linux on PI400, I find it rather snappy : indeed, it has a PI4 card running at 1.8Ghz. Before, I had a PI3 b like you, which was a little slower sometimes.

Hi,

I think you mean: pijFORTHos for the Rapsberry PI.

It looks a good implementation, I have not tried it yet, maybe in the New Year.

The implementation of RiscOS v5.28 runns nice on a RPI 2B, but on a 3B is really fast. I think the PI 400 would be even slicker.

The advantage of RiscOS, is the available software that is mostly free and if you are into RISC assembler, the Basic Interpreter allows inline assembler compilation. Rather like the BBC Basic using 6502 assembler inline compilation.

I will maybe atart saving up for a PI 400, looks a nice slick system.


Regards,

Derek

Finally got the "bible". Was on sale on Amazon UK for one third of the normal price. And, miraculously, was delivered to Finland from the UK before Brexit :D

I think that's reading sorted for quite a while, this monster is over 1100 pages!

Have fun with that!

I'm still waiting for a small package from Flossmoor, IL, USA, which was first posted on 24th November. USPS Tracking data shows it's bouncing about various transfer airports in the USA such as Atlanta and Chicago (10 steps so far within the USA in the tracking data), and hasn't even left for the UK yet :(

that's one of the 'required bookshelf' for anyone interested in Electronics - I love the bad circuits and good circuits bits that they throw into chapters - that looks like the same edition I have. :D

Is this the foundation stone of the great Andrei clone invasion of 2068?

He he, he's found an unusual way of cloning QL software. Or making more Marcels .... (as Marcel's admitted his various activities leave him little time for sleep)

Or simply for Andrew's dog breeding activities I guess ;)
