Peter and all together

Happy new year!

Once more thanks for including A2 Swiss Industry Controller to wikibooks.

A2 keeps the basic idea of Oberon. The OS runtime is quite different. 
 From beginning till Gadgets the Oberon uses task loop PROCEDURE Loop in 
Oberon.Mod. A2 uses active objects system (Aos). Every object can carry 
out an activity. So are also the applications different. We have used 
both system and both are very powerful. In A2 there are many drivers 
implemented which was very helpful.

Best regards
