ROUGOL logo Welcome to
RISC OS User Group Of London



ROUGOL is a not-for-profit organisation consisting of RISC OS users in London and the south-east. Our aim is to bring those users together. There is no membership fee and entry to all meetings is free. To find out more, email us.


Meetings are held on the third Monday of every month. Most meetings feature a guest speaker, demonstrating the latest hardware or software, giving tutorials of software both new and old, or simply to kick off discussions on the current hot topic. Entrance is free, so why not come along and say hello?


The next RISC OS London Show is on Saturday 29th October 2016.

Next meeting - Monday 19th September 2016 
The Micro One - Tom Williamson, Ident Computer

This month we have a new arrival on the RISC OS hardware scene in the form of Tom Williamson of Ident Computer, with another new computer - The Micro One. (NB. those pages require Javascript ON in NetSurf)

Based around the Raspberry Pi and supplied in kit form, it is at the cheaper end of the range but still provides a very capable all-in-one RISC OS system.

Tom is making the long trip down from Shrewsbury and will talk about how he is using BBC Micros and RISC OS computers in education in 2016, the successes he's had, and the fleet of computers that travel to schools and shows.

The Micro One will be on show during the talk for people to play with. We'll be looking at some of the features, running RISC OS 3.1 for 26bit software, using MS DOS and Windows 3.1, and running BBC and ZX Spectrum games as well.

Tom will be taking preorders for the kits ahead of the London Show. This is a chance claim a unit in the colour trim of your choice, as stock is going to be very limited and might be down to a few units by the time of the show itself.
