Forth is extensible, can be its own os, and in general makes tiny powerful programs.

Forth has been a recognized programming language since the 1970's. ColorForth is a redesign of this classic language for the 21st century. It also draws upon a 20-year evolution of minimal instruction-set microprocessors. Now implemented on modern PCs, it runs stand-alone without an operating system. Applications are recompiled from source with a simple optimizing compiler.

gforth is a forth that runs on an os, and is ANSI forth:

pacman -S gforth
