Movitz is an implementation of the Common Lisp programming language for x86 computers. It runs with no underlying operating system and is intended as "a development platform for operating system kernels, embedded, and single-purpose applications".
Movitz does not currently implement the entire ANSI Common Lisp standard, but it is stable and quite usable, though very poor as a development environment since all it provides is a simple REPL, with no facility for editing and saving files. An editor called LiCE, which closely follows the conventions of GNU Emacs, may be run on top of Movitz. A Movitz disk image with LiCE is available at www.emmett.ca/~sabetts (Web Archive copy).
