I've been thinking of a good name for the lispOS.
It seems pretty simple, but I believe a good name
is just "LOS".
In the poetry of William Blake, Los represent a very
Los: "The Eternal Prophet", fallen form of Urthona. He is
Prophecy, Poetry, the creative impulse throughout human
history; Time; the sun of Imagination. He is the blacksmith
of Man; He is the builder of Golgonooza.
Golgonooza: "hill of skulls". The City of Art built by Los
throughout human history in the midst of the fallen material
Ulro would represent Windows 95, et al...
Ulro: The world of pure materialism and delusion, the basest
condition to which Man can sink.
What do you think?
