As a follow up to this and this story - Steven Troughton-Smith goes a step further.

Tonight's project: learn how to write code that runs on Apple's LisaOS. In this piece, I am using Lisa Office System 3.1, with Workshop 3.0.

As you can imagine, there hasn't been any kind of documentation on this in decades, so it was all learned through painful trial and error, and scouring old manuals for information. Fun!

I, too, like this nostalgic articles. However, as far as OS related I seem to have missed the follow up articles on the BSD family. Did I overlook them?

You haven't missed the other BSD articles I had promised. I just haven't had too much time to do a proper write-up for NetBSD.

It's partially complete, but I want to install it to a Linksys router I have lying around. Fitting a usable NetBSD system into 8MB of flash isn't terribly difficult (though it is very time consuming), but the serial IO header doesn't want to work properly, and in case it won't boot, the recovery process is poorly documented, which makes getting it right the first time much more important.

Otherwise, it'll end up almost exactly like the FreeBSD review, and that just seems like a disservice to NetBSD.
