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 17th October 2016 
System Comparisons - Chris Hall

If you are thinking of getting a new RISC OS machine (maybe at the London Show which is less than two weeks after this meeting!) then the current plethora of options can be confusing. There are now machines available covering a wider range of performance and price points than even in Acorn's heyday.

Chris Hall has been busy trying them all out, producing benchmarks, and running real jobs on them to see how they measure up. He has kindly agreed to come along to ROUGOL to talk about his results and give his opinion on how each machine performs.

We hope to have an ARMX6, IGEPv5, Titanium, and several models of Raspberry Pi at the meeting for hands on comparison and testing. Feel free to bring along your own software to try out.
