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.

perfect escape from current OSes...

I have not enjoyed the current operating systems at all... I find that I enjoy the older ones ALOT more... considering the programming course I am taking at my school is BASIC(I enjoy programming in BASIC more so than in C/C++ but am capable of both) and I have read some people comparing it to BASIC I may try it out.... seams like it could be a great learning tool for those interested in low-level things...
