The Hacker School space has an old Apple //e sitting around.

Due to the fact that we are hackers, my friend Martin Törnwall and I decided to turn it into a lisp machine.

Quite cool.

As the BBC-B was meant to be a educational computer, there where a lot of languages available (LISP, BCPL, C, Pascal, Forth etc.)

Logo, Prolog, COBOL and while not a language, the BBC Micro even had a pretty decent (for the time) speech synthesis routine built into later models.

It was truly an awesome and versatile beast - the Raspberry Pi of it's era.
