Let's be honest. Only people like us even KNOW Oberon. I have C'T 
articles proclaiming Oberon. From the early 90's. Oberon has had its 
publicity but programmers refuse to pick it up. It limits them. 
Nobody cares for a programming language where the compiler actually 
tries to SUPPORT you.

If you knew the magazine you wouldn't be so proud of it... :o(

Elektor is best known for the projects that almost work. I built several 
of them. Either they never work, or just for a short period. Most of 
the audience is the dreamer kind.

Now, if you could get the attention of Nuts & Volts (www.nutsvolts.com), 
Servo magazine (www.servomag.com) or Circuit Cellar, that would attract 
a whole other (and way bigger and influential) audience.

That's not an abstract. That's an appetizer. The kind that Elektor is 
famous for. Neither flesh nor fish.

Met vriendelijke groeten,
