I've always been a fan of Oberon - the language and the OS. The book referenced in that paper - Project Oberon is well worth a read and is available as a (legitimate) online pdf: http://www.ethoberon.ethz.ch/WirthPubl/ ... Oberon.pdf . Lots of other documents about Oberon there.

Absolutely stunning! Now you can see and play with Oberon in your browser :)

That seems cool in theory, but the emulator seems kind of useless. For example, pressing Backspace causes my browser to go to the previous page rather than send backspace to the emulator.
