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 15th February 2016 
RISC OS for Pi-nuts - Peter Howkins and Bryan Hogan

This month we'll be looking at ways to run RISC OS for very little outlay.

Firstly, this week saw the release of a new version of RPCemu, the free RiscPC emulator. It will now boot all versions of RISC OS 3.5+, 4.x, 5.2x and 6.x out of the box, all with support for 8MB of VRAM. We will hopefully be able to demonstrate the setup running on Windows and Linux.

Then we will look at how to get RISC OS running on the ultra-cheap (free on the cover of a magazine!) Raspberry Pi Zero, and comparing it with usage on the still very cheap Pi1 and Pi2.
