    Hi everyone,
    I have decided to join the linux forums.
    Linux is not my preferred OS, RISC OS is; but there are a lot of things I can't do on RISC OS and I then turn to linux (Xandros) on my EeePC.

    Yes, it is. It was also the first OS to run on ARM processors and still does. For example, it runs on the BeagleBoard that has a Texas Instruments OMAP3 SoC with ARM Cortex-A8 processor. There is a version being developed for the OMAP4 SoC.
