Acorn computer
Last modified: Friday, November 05, 2004 

In the 1980's many British schools and homes were outfitted with Acorn desktop computers. Founded in 1978, Acorn Computers Company developed their own operating system (OS) for their Acorn computer called RISC OS. Unable to keep ahead of the Wintel movement, in September 1998 Acorn Company announced that all work on Acorn desktop computers had ceased.

The Acorn company was eventually bought out by Pace Micro Technology plc.
