Hi.

Is it possible to download somewhere the original sources of Oberon System or it's original implementation ontop x86? The 'original' means mentioned in the body of the book "Project Oberon" exactly, without any gadgets mentioned it the appendix A.

I don't think there was a x86 implementation of the original Oberon System only for Ceres, but don't count on my knowledge.

As far as I know it is the so called Oberon0 which is available (for example) at the server in Linz ftp://ftp.ssw.uni-linz.ac.at/pub/Oberon/Oberon0.Cod

Bernhard is correct. The earliest (floppy) copies of Oberon I have are labelled SPARC-Oberon 2.6.1 (18.12.1992) and Oberon V4 for Windows 3.1 and NT Version 4.0-1.1 (c) 1993 -1994. There was a version that ran on top of MS-DOS available around that time as well.

Native Standalone x86 Oberon didn't appear until about 1998 and by then Oberon was System 3 with Gadgets.
