I'd just like to do some fun stuff with it... LIke write a few
applications or something.
Being able to see the source to the OS would be nice... and helpful
considering the almost complete lack of documentation.
I'd like to write a driver for the asanti scsi enet card and a tcp/ip
stack. Of course, being a stupid database programmer guy, I'd have
no idea how to do it, but learning would be fun!
I also learned to program in Oregon Software Pascal II (on a
decwriter hooked up to a pdp 11/70) so seeing a whole OS written in
Pascal (and assembly I bet) would be really interesting.
I think you'd have better luck asking Woz. But I bet they wouldn't
let him do it. ...
I'll start an online petition. Anyone want to help with the
resurrect lisa website? Oh God, not again. So many projects, so
