For a long time have I, a mere computer user, wondered about any potential
connection between the OHS project and such operating systems as Linux and
BeOS. The recent note on this list about a potential DOS-based version of
Augment further raised my interest in this issue as does the potential of
seeing these systems on devices as small as palmtops (PocketLinux, BeIA).

Following Grant's link, I learned that another Knight of the Round Table,
Sun Microsystems, has announced that Gnome 2.0 will be the desktop for the
Solaris system, replacing CDE. "To defend what was and the dream of what
could be."
