Large portions of this article are autobiographical and don't provide citation notation. In addition, the phrasing used in the article tends to shift from that of an encyclopedia at many points. Revision should probably take place. Masquatto 20:50, 3 September 2007 (UTC)
"Sassenrath is currently in the process of implementing the next generation of REBOL, V3.0"
This may have been true when last edited, but through 2011 to date it cannot not be confirmed to be true given the state of the project ( the RMA partners and the rebol-red language project.)
See dates on his last posts to the Rebol developer community at rebol.net under Carl blog and Rebol3 blog.
I do not believe that either the nature or the the name of his current project or partners/employers/clients is public knowledge.
Some information is public at the Rebol Altme "world" forums at rebol3

2012 - edit long overdueEdit
I don't wish to be the one to do it, but really,
"Sassenrath is currently in the process of implementing the next generation of REBOL, V3.0 (which was due out in 2009). "
First, it is now June 2012
Second: I only know of one Rebol developer with occasional contact with Carl and there is no reason to believe that Carl is working on Rebol 3.0

Amiga Computer: no credit to TRIPOSEdit
The Amiga OS was built on top of TRIPOS. This section implies that Amiga OS was built from scratch by Sassenrath. No mention of a team and no mention of TRIPOS.
The section says multitasking was a novelty and a challenge. TRIPOS supplied the multitasking.
As far as multitasking personal computer operating systems: I think that Apple Lisa did multitasking earlier, but I'm not sure that it multitasked. QNX did it earlier. OS-9 did it earlier. MP/M did it earlier. Cromemco's Cromix did it earlier. Those are just off the top of my head.
