The New Lisp Machine

Post by JackB » Tue Feb 10, 2015 12:05 pm

I periodically check in to see if anything has changed in the lisp world.
I tried to create the 'new lisp machine', a intel PC that would be a web server and only ran lisp as the OS.
On the internet nobody cars what OS you are running, so why not have a Lisp OS.
This was in 2000, 15 years ago. The last few years, it is all Java and PHP, and now Javascript.
It would be nice to change it. I am looking at a job using Erlang, so it has invoked another look into the state of Lisp.

So why not a new lisp machine? A new dialect designed just for web to replace LAMP?

I think you may like to check this:

They have done something like "The New Haskell Machine" or "The New Erlang Machine", it's good to start a "New Lisp Machine".

In prac­ti­cal pro­gram­ming projects, Lisps are rare, and Racket es­pe­cially so. Thus, be­fore I em­barked on my Lisp ad­ven­ture, I wanted to un­der­stand the costs & ben­e­fits of us­ing a Lisp.

There's Mezzano, but it is work in progress. You can try a Virtual Box image, though.
