Announce: PicoLisp in Hardware (PilMCU)

Hello List, we are proud to announce PilMCU, the Lisp Machine on a Chip! :) We, that is George Orais (who persuaded me into the project) and me. Georg built the actual machine in Verilog, and I did the changes and extensions to PicoLisp. PilMCU is an implementation of 64-bit PicoLisp directly

Hi, Here it is: https://registry.hub.docker.com/u/jkleiser/picolisp64/ I had some problems getting the system date right, but now it seems to work Let’s hope it will continue that way. If it is not working like it should, maybe you’ll have to tweak the /etc/ntp.conf file. You may use nano

Congratulations to both of you on this important feat! Funds should flow in when picoLisp OS is seen running with all virtues, on existing hardware. Looking for introductory level material on this to present to educational institutions, for them to realize value of this project.

Both Jakob and Alex are right! 1. PicoLisp has to infiltrate existing real metal hardware to demonstrate/appeal to less techy, in general people with VC. 2. Comparative benchmarks on same underlying hardware will be helpful to showcase.
