Welcome to Oberon

Welcome to Bluebottle

Last changed :

Bluebottle is a powerful operating system developed in the Programming Languages and Runtime Systems Research Group, based on the Active Object System (Aos) kernel. The Aos kernel provides a compact runtime environment for the Active Oberon language (pdf), which supports active objects (threads) directly, and enables the construction of efficient active object-based systems that directly run on the hardware.

Above the kernel layer, a flexible collection of modules provide generic abstractions for devices and services, e.g., file systems, user interfaces, networking, codecs and more.

A relatively large number of applications is available for the Bluebottle system. For example:

* Media Player (DivX, MP3)
* Programming Editor
* Web Server
* TV
* Oberon for Bluebottle

Bluebottle is currently implemented for Intel SMP-compatible multi-processor systems (hyperthreading is supported) and Intel-compatible single-processor systems as well as for the Strong-ARM/XScale processor. Bluebottle can also run in several virtual machines such as Qemu, VMWare and Virtual PC 4.0 (Macintosh version only).

Of course this page is hosted on a server running Bluebottle.
