It seems unlikely that an OberonRISCemulator would exist for ARM,
when Oberon [with the ETHO HCI !!] doesn't exist.

There were problems with your LNO on 'some' X11 hardware, but
your FrameBuffered-selectable-parameterized facility was/is remarkable!

I've read that X11 is a monster, so I'm wondering how much we can get
from PO2013 regarding a FrameBuffer version for the rPi.

Yes! We need <centralised documentation facilities> for PO2013.
Wikipedia-like sounds good.
A further reason why pdf is a curse, is that it HOGS the search-for-

There have been so many ports and variations.
Besides IMO, the language is not so much special as the OS.
I've been using it everyday since the 90s:first x86-Native, then
when USB became essential, the linux-based-version.
Using anything else feels like tying your shoe-laces, wearing
`wily`: the public-domain version of plan9's admitted copied
idea of ETHOberon is my prefered utility for rPi, since there's
no ETHO yet. But wily's reversal of the left/right mouse relative
to ETHO is a problem.

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.
