Roberto Brega has left ETHZ last year and IFR ceased to exists when Prof.
Schweizer emerited.


> As to Oberon System 3 as real-time OS:

> ) which built a realtime Oberon OS for PowerPC based on System3 (with
> minor deviations) but allows code writing/compiling on a PC with
> crosscompilation. It was meant as an OS for mechatronics /robots and
> found a number of applications in the community, even in industry. I
> suppose Fernando Passold is referring to this.
> Strangely, this project did never make any waves (?) in the oberon
> newsgroups or mailing lists, although I suspect that a number of
> interesting points could arise from more insight into the project for
> the general "oberoner".
> However, apart from looking at some code, I never used it myself in
> real applications.
