Floppy disk !Xamos

In a show of full circle, XAMOS has now been ported to RISC OS, the operating system originally designed for the Acorn Archimedes series of computers, with the Acorn A3010 providing a powerful competitor to the Amiga 1200 back in the day.

Now an ARM-based Raspberry Pi, costing under £30 in the UK, can run (in addition to the usual BBC BASIC) a reimplementation of AMOS BASIC on an Acorn-derived operating system, using Amiga-style screen effects in SDL.

This RISC OS port was produced by Chris Gransden.

XAMOS also runs on Linux on the Raspberry Pi, and work is being done on that front to make it work with optimised fullscreen SDL libraries for extra speed.
