Logo for the PicoLisp programming language.png
I recently found picolisp, anothe lisp dialect - http://picolisp.com (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Picolisp)  Its notable features are: small and fast.  But it's an interpreted environment, it's a "dialect", meaning slightly differnet from common lisp, and fixed point, no floating point support.

It is an MIT open source project and I've compiled it on CentOS 32 and 64 bit environments and also in cygwin.  It runs pretty quick, and I really like its simplicity.  I'm still learning it and so far it looks pretty good.

The author is extremly helpful and the mailing list members respond pretty quickly although the group is small.
