> 1. Is the date displayed correctly?

The System Log starts with:
Oberon for WindowsTM  V4.0-2.3 on Windows NT 6.1
iOP2   RC/NM  V1.7   22.1.1996

Is this 22.1.1996 the date when the System was built, or is it intended to
be the current date?

I downloaded the V4 from the Linz server

I tried to locate Oberon on Sourceforge. I found DOSOberon, which is
probably not what you are referring to. Could you please point me in the
right direction?

No, the mouse wheel has no effect.
