cf2022 uses BIOS calls to access a USB drive, so it is not necessary to have a floppy disk drive to run natively!
Full assembler source file, NASM assembler, colorForth source and batch files to create the colorForth image, and run it in the bochs emulator.
Real colorForth running on (just about) any Windows PC.
bochs is available from http://bochs.sourceforge.net/ Thank you to all the bochs developers...

cfdos is a DOS program to display colorForth pre-parsed source blocks. This program will work on any computer that runs or emulates DOS, and allows you to view colorForth source, in both normal and "colour blind" mode. It features a file listing utility (F6) which displays all files of type *.BLK in the same directory, and can copy them to a formatted floppy disk. colorForth Explorer Edition is the latest colorForth stand-alone operating system, packaged together with a Windows/DOS program to display colorForth source and create bootable floppy disks.
Don't be deceived by the fact that colorForth boots from a floppy - this is an experimental state-of-the-art operating system for a PC.
