Otus Lisp

Otus Lisp is a dialect of the Lisp programming language created by Steve Russell, one of the founders of the original project for creating Spacewar! at MIT. It was an attempt to improve Common Lisp and make it more usable as a systems programming language for Unix operating systems. The language incorporated some features from other Lisps, such as CLOS from Common Lisp Object System and Dylan-like macros, aiming to create a flexible yet efficient platform for developers working on complex software projects. Despite its potential in theory, Otus has not gained significant traction in practice within the programming community.
