   I've been told that implementations of Oberon, as currently available
   on MS-DOS and some Unix (was it SPARC?), is built on top of the
   existing OS, so under MS-DOS it uses the DOS filesystem (of course
   with ugly cludges for the namespace limitations...)

   So an implementation on top of other Un*x variants should be possible.
   The greatest effort for porting would probably go into the compiler,
   but it is rather small.


There already is a compiler back-end for the i386, but source isn't
free.  So we get to wait for the ETHZ people to do a linux port
instead of doing it ourselves...
