The source for Oberon0 is very hard to get.... I never laid my hands on 
it. There is the Oberon0 that copmes with "Compiler Construction" but 
it is different from the Oberon0 that was used for the Oberon0 boot 
disk of Native Oberon.
AFAIK it is also not in Project Oberon, For the rest, Oberon may have 
been the very first open source OS on earth. Fully documented open 
Not 'free, as in free beer' since you had to buy the books. But that 
kind of 'freedom' is a result of the downsides of internet.

Met vriendelijke groeten,
