Anyone have any experience or thoughts on using the RISC OS for RPi ?

I know Christopher Barnatt did a video on it this year:

It looked like the late eighties, early nineties all over again 😉

An OS for the Raspberry Pi that is only 120 MB?   That's pretty interesting.

I wonder though what all it supports?  I run all my RPis headless via remote desktop. So I wonder if it supports xrdp?

I also wonder it it would run Geany and Python?

Does it have support for RPi GPIO pins?

Finally, will it support file sharing on a network?

Lots of questions, so few answers.

At 120 MB for the OS it's really attractive.  It even has a web browser.  That's amazing.   Being that it's so small I might try playing with it at some point.   I'll have to get some 4GB SD cards so I don't need to copy large ones when backing up the system SD cards.

I will have to learn how to run my RPi headless as well.

If the OS doesn't support the software you require then it is useless.
A long time ago I was going to change from Windows to Linux only to discover there was no software at the time to easily access video from a webcam so I had to stay with Windows.

I see you can also run Android on a RPi.
