I would strongly suggest that you change your mind and walk away
from Oberon!! It is a complete waste of time, IMHO.

Invest your time with something like:


There, your skills will be put to good use on an active
and Open Source Project!!

BTW, it seems that before a person is able to productively use the
Oberon OS, on top of Linux, you need to know what LEO is, AND how
to use it!!!!  But there is nobody willing to divulge THAT secret,
here.  So you will frustrated until the day you walk away. Better
do it now!!!   LOL ....
