Nonsense.  Many new things have been invented in OSes since then.  But
very few of them have made it into popular OSes.

I suggest that a Lisp-based OS -- either a la the old LispMs, or a la
the super-fancy-new single-level-store global-garbage-collected ideas
that are being thrown around -- will be light-years ahead of any other
commonly available OS.  Except possibly EROS.
