Say What??

But all the references to running native on Wintel boxes ...
I couldn't be more stunned, considering the source, if the above line
said Unix or Linux instead of Inferno; maybe Greg meant to type MSWindows :)

Although I have no contact with the brain trust farther north on I95
(bell-labs.com), from what I have been able to find out so far Inferno
is the most advanced system software to ever boot on a desktop. A true
network operating system, even on a network of one. That seamlessly cact to a network or internet. Or the supercomputer down the hall/block/country.

Am I dreaming?
