These boot into Forth (Open Firmware). One of the last machines (and, AFAIK, the only x86 platform) to do so.
I frequently wonder how hard it would be to port Open Firmware to the #Kestrel3, but it's written in C, so the answer would most likely be, "moderately," on the basis of first needing to port a C compiler.
@vertigo oddly (but not really considering me and considering you) I was just wondering about revitalizing one of these by extending the openfirmware forth to take over the system lol
I'd like to play with Open Firmware at some point, but as Forth systems go, it's just so hhuuggee. I really like having an environment about at cmForth levels of complexity, personally.
Someone recently posted a link to a project page, which linked to a Github project, for Open Firmware. I've bookmarked it for future reference and research.
