JavaScript is widely used.  Although automated interpretation of a 
script from a remote server on my computer seems a fundamentally bad 
idea. Most commercial entities insist otherwise; financial 
institutions included.  Caveat benefactor.

Java on the other hand might be dying a natural death.  Ref. 

Juice is claimed to be preferrable to Java for some purposes.  I 
haven't found any prominent current interest.

Search in archive.org for http://www.oberon.ws/ yields  
which has links for Bluebottle, Native Oberon, V4 and Plugin ETH 
Oberon.  All of those links lead to an instruction "This page is 
available on the web!".

Bad links are a good way to discourage interest.  =8~)

http://www.ics.uci.edu/pub/oberon/System3/ has directories Macintosh, 
Native, Windows containing old files of possible interest.

I've pointed the old ftp link in the white paper to that.
