	Maybe so, but I think there is enough going on "here and there" to
eventually come to some kind of OS.  Maybe not this year...maybe not next
year...  I think OS is a moot point at this time.  Seeing as LispOS
will eventually take it over anyway...get something to work and let it
grow from there.  Remove the Linux-ism here, the WinNT gotcha's
a process but it has to start SOMEWHERE.

	Exciting?  Hell, I'd settle for some that "sort of worked" at this
point.  :)
