Nice one. I'd totally forgotten about Starch: that was great fun at the time, as I recall. I wonder if there are copies anywhere? I'll have to ransack my RPC's drive in case I still have it.

If anybody has write priveleges on that site, it would be a good idea to put a message on with a link to Tom Walker's free RiscPC emulator, in case any PEE CEE users are tempted to give it a whirl and remind themselves of what they've been missing, and also point out that this dead platform now has a 1 Ghz machine, even if you do have to order it from east Germany.

I don't think there's any point evangelising about it, especially when any x86 user can simply turn round and point to their four or eight 4GHz cores in a single box. It was an exciting development back in 2002 but crowing about it now is just silly.

Why am I suddenly reminded of the opening of TIB's Iyonix review from 2005? Even six years ago RISC OS was laughable tongue
