Well, I think it completely sucks that we are still using late 70s/early
systems such as Windows and Unix. 12 years ago I was working at TI with
that allowed multiple processors running different operating systems
object-oriented operating systems (you created a printer by deriving a
PostScript+Printer+the port), instant suspend and resume, OS-provided
GC, etc etc.
And that was an OS regarded then at the end of its life...
For goodness sake, the last successful new OS was TRON! (Which is
supposed to be
the most ubiquitous OS, surprisingly)
Something has stifled innovation.
