They're two different things -- there's a Transputer OS called HeliOS,
and there was also a compiled Forth-like language for the Amiga
designed by Roger Wharmby. I don't recall HeliOS-the-language ever
really taking off, but the "HeliOS Defender" demo game made it onto a
I suppose you could claim that having a Transputer board running
HeliOS-the-OS would also let you program the Amiga in occam, although
it'd only be acting as an IO server. But it's not like the Amiga's
short of programming languages; a quick look at the Fish disks or
Aminet will find lots of examples.
