    I'm no longer a RISC OS user nor a Select subscriber nor a Select

    project contributor, but I happen to have come into the

    possession of some screenshots of 6.20. Subscribers just got a disc in

    the post of the latest version. It appears there's more buttons on the

    Filer toolbar, a preview frame in Filer windows like Microsoft's

    Explorer, and a rearranged Task Manager (which now looks confusing).

    RISC OS has always had a certain amount of memory protection, although it was undermined by some poor design decisions in the early days (e.g. module area and zero page not protected from user-mode access). It was also undermined by overreliance on SWIs as a mechanismÔĽŅ for dynamic linking (because a side-effect is to switch to a privileged mode). verizon internet

    Likewise, RISC OS has always had pre-emptive multitasking if you count the TaskWindow module as part of the operating system.
