|Suppose my company were interested in developing LispOS in
|this manner:
|   Native i386 code,
|   no underlying unix (lisp down to the metal),
|   start with Scheme as basis language,
|   design with support for persistent object system,
|   implementation tools running on '95/NT,
|   free software.
|How many people would be interested in actually investing
|time and energy on this?  If there is a critical mass, I'll
|start the project.

I would certainly go for it.  Now I just have to buy a used machine I'm not
afraid to trash periodically!
