To be honest, I think of them as 2 points on a continuum, not as
different OSes. I am beginning to notice that it seems to me that folk
here don't even think of A2 and do not consider it.

My thinking was:
• that effort in one would reward effort in the other;
• Oberon is single-processor, whereas A2 supports SMP;
• the RasPi 1, Zero & ZeroW are single-processor, whereas the 2, 3 & 4
are quad-core;
• that Oberon would be more suitable for the unicore machines, and A2
for the multicore ones.
