Just to let you know.

I have started to work on it and the first steps are done. I'm
doing the work on a Solaris x86 box but the port to Linux and/or
MacOSX (x86) will affect only 3 modules.

The following has been achieved so far:

-  switched from NO to the Aos Compiler (diff. object format)
        -  GC knows protected objects now
        -  Unix versions of AosOut, AosModules, AosLoader and AosActive

-  Main thread mutated to the first active object.

-  AosDisplays and X11 display driver pluging

-  AosFS and UnixFiles plugin

-  Module Input no longer depends on Oberon module Display. This was done
        to make Input usable without the Oberon system.

-  Display speed improved by removing lots of mutex calls.

The whole Native Oberon system works stable in this new environment.
