Bluebottle (formerly known as AOS and recently as A2) is an Operating System with unconventional features. It is the next generation Native Oberon, the Oberon operating system [2][3][4] for bare PC hardware. It was developed at the ETH Zurich. It is small and fast and supports multiprocessor computers. It is completely based on an upward-compatible dialect of the Oberon programming language called Active Oberon. Its user interface supports a "point-and-click" metaphor to execute commands from text, similar to clicking hyperlinks in a browser. The interface is a zooming user interface and can be seen in the YouTube external link below.
