General Development Forth has been a recognized programming language since the 1970's. ColorForth is a redesign of this classic language for the 21st century. It also draws upon a 20-year evolution of minimal instruction-set microprocessors. Now implemented on modern PCs, it runs stand-alone without an operating system. Applications are recompiled from source with a simple optimizing compiler.

Just when you think it's dying out, you get a reminder.

Maybe this is the tool Eugenia needs for her modular OS ;)

Wasn't it Forth that was used to boot the old Macs? What do they use now?
