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.

..and quite fun. I remember getting bored one week at my day job a few years ago so I wrote my own little forth interpreter for DOS. Sadly I lost it in transit when I left that job. It would be fun to tinker with it again, but I would have to start yet again ;)
