Genera was an operating system and development environment for Lisp machines developed by Symbolics. It was essentially a fork of an earlier operating system originating on the MIT AI Lab's Lisp machines which Symbolics had used in common with LMI. The ~1.5 million lines of code that made up Genera are written in various Lisp dialects, with a number of extensions (such as for object-oriented programming) folded in.
