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.

Thanks Vlad.

Will re: "...As for functionality, I've seen muli-user, multi-process systems built with it that rival any current OS - all on a lowly 8085 clone with 64k of RAM..."

This stuff is fascinating - is there anywhere we can download such stuff to play with? (or is it expensive proprietary code)
