Of course. On "Lithium" I have a 1 MB partition for Native Oberon.

But think about this: suppose Oberon would have caught on and Windows 
would have taken he place of OS/2, then we would still be using 386 
class machines with 2 MB of RAM and 20 MB harddisks. No need for TB 
disks, GHz octocore cpu's and GB's of RAM.

Oberon was too good to guarantee progress in silicon....

Met vriendelijke groeten,
