I wonder how long it will be before Microsoft releases an OS that is
at least Unix compatible at the API and user-command level. That
would solve the biggest hassle of MS systems, that they use completely
different commands to do the same thing, and one doesn't want to spend
a year learning stuff that is valid for only one OS and could change
at any time. Apple drank the kool-aid, so maybe MS will eventually
too. Even just having fork() would halve the difficulty of porting
