Hello, world[edit]

I don't think "sh.m" is needed in the "hello, world" program. — DAGwyn 23:56, 22 February 2007 (UTC)

It's a poor example of Limbo. We need one that shows off the simplicity of its concurrency approach using channels. -- Ralph Corderoy (talk) 12:51, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Garbage collection[edit]

Inferno uses reference counting plus a four-color garbage collector. Reference counting deals with any memory that isn't cyclic.
