    When I was a teenager learning to code on the Acorn Archimedes, I was fascinated by articles in computer magazines about Unix. The closest I could get to it myself was using the Norcroft C compiler, which had a very unix-like suite of tools somewhat uncomfortably ported to RISC OS.

    And now, 30 years later, I have an M1 MacBook pro. An ARM-powered Unix workstation. Teenaged me would have been very pleased that we have achieved the Right and Proper result of progress in technology, except for the fact that it is made by Apple not Acorn!
