This is my point, though:  If LINUX can do it, surely we can arrange a
clean-room team, and WE can do it.

If I knew anything at all about interfacing to hardware (and, uh, had

When will people learn how to think!??  I long for the day to come when
software is purchased on the basis of technical merit and usefulness and not
on the basis of marketing bullsh*t.  And when is intelligence going to become
a prerequisite for survival?
