I've been thinking that somebody really should write the Acorn story. They were amazing machines in so many ways. The BBC Micro MOS was an amazing bit of code.


I have a document dated 1987 that very briefly describes the plan for
what was to become Artworks, which is the direct predecessor of Xara
Xtreme today. So this software goes back a long, long way.

Is anyone archiving this stuff? Do we need an equivalent of archive.org for Acorn stories?

Not that I'm aware of. There's bits and pieces in various locations but no central resource afaia. drobe.co.uk may be interested in archiving stuff (they already carry mirrors of many of the main sites from time immemorial ;)
