	There has been lots of discussion of bundling software on other platforms
	than Symbolics also.  For instance, many business-oriented operating 
	systems now include a relational database runtime engine.  Most of the
	development tools are still extras.  If we have a scientific /engineering
	object-oriented operating system, would it be logical to bundle an
	OODBMS and hypertext with it?

    ODB (Object Databases, Inc.) in Cambridge, Mass is marketing
    Graphael's G-BASE system. We (PANGARO Incorporated) are now
    converting our hypermedia-based training system (THOUGHTSTICKER) to
    G-BASE, for our existing client (a nuclear power utility). The
    combination is quite powerful and of interest to many applications.
    So, I think the answer to your question is, absolutely. Clearly their
    should be a close relationship between "operating system", "database"
    and "training/help/documentation" facilities, just as you are
