Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Acorn Network Computer was a network computer designed and manufactured by Acorn Computers Ltd. It was the implementation of the Network Computer Reference Profile that Oracle Corporation commissioned Acorn to specify for network computers. Sophie Wilson of Acorn led the effort. It was launched in August 1996. The NCOS operating system used in this first implementation was based on RISC OS and ran on ARM hardware. Manufacturing obligations were achieved through a contract with Fujitsu subsidiary D2D. In 1997, Acorn offered its designs at no cost to licensees of RISC OS.show more
