I fully acknowledge your point, Bob.
But - Does the world really need another 32-bit OS? I mean, there's
Windows, there's Linux, there are some more Unix-based ones (lacking
importance, though), there's even some sort of OS/2 community left...
What would a 32-bit Geos be good for, besides of the ump*th re-invention
of the wheel?
Well, a few days ago I really had nothing to do, so I went to Hannover
which is only an hour from my place, and spent a whole day at the CeBit
I haven't seen everything, of course, -that's almost impossible within 8
hours- but my strong impression was that the market is fed well with
OK, if a new star were born, it would have to be cheaper than other
commercial ones, more stable, more user-friendly, etc.etc.etc....
The niche Geos resides in will probably not expand, maybe shrink. But this
niche is at least a place to live in. What would happen to Geos if it
crawls out of it?
Hmm, for BBx, there would be still the fishing boat option ;-)
