Oberon Pi?

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 have it :-)), but with two kids below 3 years I can not spend much time for it.
I call it a paravirtualzed version of SharkOberon. It uses the normal Linux Kernel and X11. At current state more a prove of concept than a usable version.
I use a Radxa Rock-like device

) on 16bit X11, but should also run on rPi.

Hi,
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 would be.

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.
