RISC OS Direct
Tom Williamson, WiFi Sheep

RISC OS Direct is a distribution for the Raspberry Pi first released at the South West Show in February, consisting of the standard RISC OS Open ROM plus a bundle of useful applications and tutorials to make it easier for new users to get started.

Alongside this is a series of videos produced by Tom Williamson of WiFi Sheep to show new users how to get RISC OS Direct onto a Raspberry Pi and guide them through their first steps in using the OS and bundled applications. Tom will be joining us via Zoom to give us more background on how RISC OS Direct came about and plans for future WiFi Sheep video tutorials.

As well as the Pi image, there is also a version of RO Direct configured for use with the RPCEmu emulator for use on Windows, Mac and Linux.

This meeting was held online via Zoom. There is a report on The Icon Bar and a recording of it can be watched on YouTube.
