With your help your os will become a alternetive to all operating systems on the market.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but... a) the goal of FreeBSD isn't to become a marketed product, per se... and b) FreeBSD already IS an alternative to marketed OS's.
If you will make WINE a hidden component in the operating system and tell everyone about the new compatability you will make a difference in operating systems of future computing.
a) why make Windows out of a system that isn't Windows? If you need it...why not just run it?
b) I don't WANT invisible compatibility. I don't need the virus propagations and hacks for one OS showing up in another one.
I *like* knowing that I can have a virus binary on my system sandboxed tightly in because it *can't* run on my platform. I regularly test some of my mailscanners and AV implementations using files saved on my OS X system.
Make a difference and change the way operating systems work by taking this advice of mine and you will have a flawless operating system of sorts.
Except that it runs Windows stuff. :-p
YOUR OPERATING SYSTEM WILL DO IT ALL
No OS is perfect if it aims to be all things for all people. Focus on the strengths that work best for the OS niche, and you'll have a usable system for that segment...at least that's my philosophy. I've been wrong many times before though :-)
if you make this a special component in the operating system. We can acomplish! The world needs windows programs without the "blue screen of death" So do this and you will be rewarded inside af how you changed the world!
Then wait for MS to fix their problems. Me, I'm happy with my servers running FreeBSD and Linux and my notebook running OS X and I tolerate the servers the end users use with Win2k :-/
