RISC OS is a computer operating system designed in Cambridge, England by Acorn. First released in 1987, its origins can be traced back to the original team that developed the ARM microprocessor. RISC OS is owned by Castle Technology Ltd.

RISC OS Open Limited (ROOL) is an organisation run on a largely voluntary basis. It is managing the process of publishing the source code to RISC OS.
