No problems. However, if we weren't around you wouldn't need to worry - you
would just have to do what we did when learning the system (before we had
access to the internet) i.e. RTFM ;-) 

Fortunately Oberon came with a number of excellent text books: 


I particularly recommend the ones authored by Wirth and / or Reiser and / or
H. Mössenböck. A few can be downloaded as PDF files. I just checked Amazon -
some of them are almost cheaper to buy as a second-hand copy than it would
be to download them and print them out! The PDFs are great for searching but
I find the bound books more convenient to read than a printout.
