Guys, I would like to commend you on this endeavour... Excellent work.

Downloaded the RISC OS Direct 5.27 version, extracted from the zip and it
worked straight out of the zip.  :-)

Perfect for newbies wanting to try out RISC OS, and just the ticket for
past RISC OS user who've been elsewhere and want to try out the OS again.

Personally, I've been using Acorn/RISC OS computing continually since 1982
with a variety of Real hardware machines and Virtual installs as well, and
it was a great feeling to be able to unzip a RPCEmu and get it working
immediately without all the additional "Stuff" we had to do in past

Most excellent.  :-)
