In 1984 a Commodore 64 appeared at home with the expected results:
(first on the C64, later too on the Amiga)
- MC680x0 assembler
(since 1990) I even managed to write in basic an assembler and disassembler(!)
- OPL (Organiser Programming Language)
a kind of Basic-derivate
- HP 48
(since 1993) with its own RPN programming language;
alas, its LCD screen has gotten rather broken ...
Critical readers will notice that none of these has ever gotten beyond
the beta stage, but that's the way those things go ...
Moreover everything is open source, so these critics can be silenced
immediately by remarking that they can fix the situation themselves
<evil grin&bt; And I certainly don't feel like joining the habits of some
of the commercial instances who seem to like the maxim it's not a bug, it's
a feature so much <very evil grin>
a Java interpreter written in C. I started this project to run Java too on my
Amiga, nowadays to get it working some day on my Palm. For now, it only
works under Linux with X-Windows however (Hello World works both under the
command line and graphical). Since the Palm is not good at all at multitasking,
Nemu takes care of this itself; in that sence it's a rather atypical Java virtual machine
(most seem to use threads or interrupts for task switching). Experimental.
- STDIPP (Simple Three Dimensional Image
a program to edit 3D images. I made it because i knew
someone who made his thesis
about confocal microscopes, which are things that (surprise) record 3D images.
a SImplistic Calculator & Computer
Algebra System. Was used now and then in the courses
of Formal Methods in the second year of informatics at the RUG.
Alpha (and currently in major overhaul).
an IRC chat program in Java. With some unusal futures like
show all what someone said, search for words, and check whether
there are chatters that fall into certain profiles. Alpha.

- The Emerging Economic Paradigm of Open Source
Open Source can be explained entirely within the context of conventional open-market economics. Indeed, it turns out that it has much stronger ties to the phenomenon of capitalism than you may have appreciated.
