Factor began life in 2003. Originally a scripting language for a Java game project and quickly grew into a general-purpose language. In mid-2004, a decision was made to write a native Factor implementation with a minimal core in C. The native implementation was bootstrapped from Java Factor, and soon thereafter native Factor became the de facto implementation. Work on the Java implementation stopped in late 2004.
