Dear Peter,

I thought that an entire chapter on how Oberon works on Ceres machine is
not completed right now because since Oberon was ported maybe we are all
concentrated on the other platforms (that we do have); for example, where
are the original code for putting to work a Ceres computer (1, 2, 3?) with
Oberon (System 3 I guess)?
It is even mentioned on PO2013 that some parts of the original Oberon
System (bootloader?) were written in assembler, and one of the successes of
the new implementation is that the booting process is written completely in
I know that Ceres computers are not available easily but some
retrocomputing hobbyists gave a second chance to too many computers and if
that is the case for Oberon System on Ceres, there is a need to have the
original code and bootstrapping sequence described to reproduce it all
over. At least for study purposes or history registers.
