ETH Oberon can be installed on various platforms, either as a native operating system or on top of the operating system of the hosting machine. Until approximately 2019 it was available with source code from the central repository at ftp.inf.ethz.ch/pub/ETHOberon/ located at the ETH in Zürich, Switzerland and from a number of mirror sites. Each sub-directory listed contains an introductory text (usually named "readme.txt") with installation directions. The delivered compiler varies depending on the implementation.
