A thought occured to me: I wonder if abyone is working on a port of
Oberon A2 (aka Bluebottle) to the Pi? A StronARM/Xscale version
already exists so it shouldn't be too difficult - but beyond my
capapbilty, I suspect!!
There's a lot of new activity on the mailingList, prompted by
Prof Wirths ProjectOberon2013, which is a FPGA based RISC system
with [if I read correctly] only 14 different-instructions?!
I'm pushing for a rPi port of ETHO... OK, I've still got the text
in my crappy web-based gmail:----------------------------

I call it a paravirtualzed version of SharkOberon. It uses the normal

should also run on rPi.

oberon-risc-emu and thus RISC Oberon just runs fine on Raspberry PI.

If you want to be impressed by ADVERTS stick with coca-cola,
KFC & google.
ETHO is based on minimalist/essence like I was hoping rPi
Not come across that, but then I've not really played with Oberon much
since I ran x86 Native Oberon. I liked the (graphics-based) text
interface, nice to work in. Plan 9 was influenced by it but they
managed to mess it up :-)
I'll do a bit more digging around...
PS: the website used to be quicker, perhaps they have a problem.
Yes, the F/B-twitter kiddies-wave has by-passed it. No more interest,
so no more support. Pity; but you can't ignore the market.
I used nativeX86 for a decade. But later I found LEO aka
(ETH Oberon (2.4.3) for Linux x86) a killer, especially for difficult
problems, when you need 6 textFiles visible together, and the ability
to colour the texts to show 'related' parts.
OTOH, I typically only have one or two LEO open, but 6 of `wily`:
[the ETHO copy with the left/right scroll reversed].
wily is available for the rPi; and is my prefered editor/navigator
launcher, to date - for the rPi.
