Amen!  If I had to sum up in one sentence why Genera is still the best
software development environment I have ever used, it is that I spent 95%
of my time solvening my problem and not fighting the tools.  It's 10-15
year old technology, and yet, IMHO it is still leading edge.

What I want is Genera that runs on mac or pc hardware, commodity stuff.  I
remember people compaining about the mememory requirements of Genera (10MB
RAM, 140MB disk space)  how quaint that seems now.
