If everybody does a little bit it could go quite quickly.
Which linux distro ? ;)
Maybe even some BSD version so that closed-source os-es could be done as
Though I onced tried FreeBSD... I couldn't even figure out the gui or how to
start an app..
So maybe linux more user friendly...
So first someone needs to find a good/user friendly linux distro which is
not to large.
Also for kicks maybe a floppy-disk based linux distro could be turned into
pascal as well.
So could even be multiple linux distro's turned into pascal...
Different flavors for everybody :)
Most important would be to be able to play with the to-be-pascal sources of
the linux distro so people can try out things with the os... ;)
So focus would be:
1. Linux distro(s)/kernel(s).
2. Linux gui(s).
3. Linux editor for editing pascal files.
4. Free pascal compiler probably already available.
Then anything else can be turned into pascal later on :)
Maybe even drivers and applications and such ;)
