  • a2

    Active Oberon System (AOS), aka A2, and Bluebottle OS

  • "Bluebottle" is now called A2 and it's on Github now:

    https://github.com/btreut/a2

    I've done quite a bit of editing on the Wikipedia article, including bringing stuff across from Russian Wikipedia (via Google Translate).

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A2_(operating_system)

    The most active user and development community for A2 seems to be in Russia. There's a Telegram group too but I don't speak the language so I can't follow very much of it at all.

  • A2OS

    Unofficial mirror of the ETH A2 repository

  • Because of pjmlp's hint I just looked into the repositories https://github.com/btreut/a2 and https://github.com/metacore/A2OS, but didn't find a coroutines module. I'm aware that Active Oberon (Patrik Reali, 2004) includes concurrency, but this is a different language than the one used for System 3.

  • TheOberonCompanionCD

    This is the original contents of the CD to the book "The Oberon Companion" (vdf, 1998)

  • In case you're interested: I realized that I indeed already have System 3 binaries and source code in my collection; unfortunately the original links at ETH don't work anymore; but I have a physical copy of the book "The Oberon Companion" which includes a CD; I now have uploaded the CD contents to Github; here it is: https://github.com/OberonSystem3/TheOberonCompanionCD
