Ahhh, well, what we do we do very well indeed :-b.
Seems that we have gotten trapped waiting for the next Flux OSkit to come
Real Soon Now has taken on its usual meaning of Don't Hold Your Breath.
For myself, I have been doing a considerable amount of research into the
of the art in OS implementation and design as might be relevant to LispOS.
told ET that I would write all this up about a month ago for his site

task, I will post a rough draft here in the next few days.
I have also come up with a possible way to get this project on the road
though it might require doing away with the artificial separation between
and LispVM. I will post this separately, hopefully today. I don't mean to
mysterious or anything -- what I am considering is effectively a Lisp
of the Squeak Smalltalk environment as a starting point (yes, written as an
on a VM to begin with), but I would like to detail some of my thoughts
how to do this, and some design decisions used in Squeak that could be
useful for creating LispOS.
