If everybody does a little bit it could go quite quickly.

Question is:

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 ;)
