"An FPGA emulator for the original Oberon workstation was released in 2015, but sadly isn't available any more."

This is not quite true. First, the release date was 2013. Second, the Spartan-3 Starter Kit is still available in the aftermarket (I bought mine on Ebay). Third, the original Verilog was ported to a number of FPGA boards which are still available. Fourth, the original 2013 FPGA Oberon System can run without any changes in the emulators on a PC or Mac. So the emulated workstations are available and can be used to practice the Oberon System.

All these details, and many others, can be found on my compilation website RiskFive.com.
