General Development "Forth is a simple, natural computer language. It has achieved remarkable acceptance where efficiency is valued. It evolved in the 1960s on a journey from university through business to laboratory. This is the story of how a simple interpreter expanded its abilities to become a complete programming language/operating system."

Yes, Forth was part of the One Laptop Per Child (OLPC) firmware system. Here's an interview that illuminates this a bit more: http://howsoftwareisbuilt.com/2008/03/27/interview-with-mitch-bradl...

Also, there are a series of 24 Forth tutorials related to OpenFirmware on the OLPC site: http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Forth_Lessons

Is OLPC dead, or does it just smell funny?
