Developing operating systems in GC enabled languages
Hi,

this is a bit off topic, but since the question pops here every 
now and then.

I have decided to leave here the links how Native Oberon and Blue 
Bottle got implemented.

These are operating systems implemented in languages, Oberon and 
Active Oberon, which
share a similar philosophy to Go in what concerns type safety and 
GC support.

Those systems were not toy systems like Singularity or Home, but 
usable desktop operating
systems used during the late 90's at ETHZ in Switzerland.

After the ongoing discussion on HN, I decided to spread a bit the 
word.

Feel free to disagree. :)
