    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.

I'm using it on an Alpha.  As soon as there are real 64bit chips out there for
for the commodity platforms, I'll do everything in my power to make it available
on them as well...
