Speaking of standard hardware, is there currently any plan
to port Genera to a Unix box?
Also, while we're on rumors, does anyone know the status and plans
for Symbolics CLOS? Is it possible that Symbolics will be doing an X
Windows version of Genera?
No, but AT&T has contracted Symbolics to re-write uucp and sendmail.
Unfortunately, the contract is in jeapardy because Sun is trying to buy
Symbolics. It appears that the plan is that Sun will buy Symbolics,
then issue a press release the same day announcing that Dynamic Windows
has become "a de-facto industry standard for Unix" under Sun's tutelage.
I love it.
I hope everyone understands that Gumby is making a joke here...
