I'm a bit snowed-under with problems as S.Africa degenerates to 4th-world
conditions, and have difficulty web-searching; but what does the hardware cost.
eg. the facilities/price menu.

Looking at the big-picture, why would one want to 'Astrobe'?
* Oberon is a nice [good effort to result ratio] language.
* ARM has good: support, cost, power-consumption, versatility.

What about facilities to go-down to asm; which is obviously needed?

I want to write some original thoughts/experience re. asm ; when I find time.
