Okay, I see that there are two ways to interpret "... for Archimedes 3010 on PC". I read it as the Arc was actually on the PC = emulated. Now I see that it could also be that he's wanting to copy the...

You'll find that .adf is a disk image. You need to mount this virtual floppy into a virtual floppy drive. However, that's where it ends, since you don't tell me which emulator you're using (there are...

Point taken. All I'm saying is that you can't compare RISC/os to AMIGA/os.

No, because according to Acorn's own documentation, it's RISC OS. It's got a name, that name is stated in facts and documentation and copyright licenses. It's absolutely, unequivocably, crystal...

Irrelevant. It is a proper noun; that is to say, the name of a product or service, and represents a unique entity. Some people write "Micro$oft" and, although I'm sure they doubtless find it amusing,...

Incidentally, I hate to join the ranks of the anal retentive trolls, but it's RISC OS, not RiscOS, RISCOS, Risc/OS, Riscos, or anything else. I say this for two reasons. First, all caps because it's...

Actually this wasn't a standardisation approach as such. Given that RISC OS was written on ARM hardware, its code can't run natively on x86 hardware (only through machine-level emulation). The second...

They were marketed as educational machines, and some of it was excellent stuff too, well above the 'edutainment' level of Windows stuff of the same era. An old favourite was Sherston Software's...
