[cswiger@widomaker.com: RE: The Corporation for Public Software/Natianal Endowment for the Bits]

  if we nationalize the OS interface, and have NIST or FCC certify
  applications which only use legitimate OS call vectors, then linux,
  solaros, os2, Geos, even Javaos can all build up api support to run standard
  applications, without the threat of Microsoft adding new components
  which make other OS's obsolete upon arrival. NT and OS/2 have gone some
  distance into removing the need even for intel instruction sets.
