Hi Johnson,

I completely agree, I think it's already 100x better!

Yes, but where do you draw the line, and how do you deal with backward 
hardware capability and how far back in history do you go? What about 
forward compatibility such as eight core 64 bit processor? If you 
need/want a modern fast open-source o/s with a "UI" how does FreeDOS fit 
into this concept sitting next to Linux? Who will write all the drivers 
for the latest NICs, USB, Kerberos, signed SMB, NFS, NTFS, TCP/IP with 
IP v6, not to mention cameras, scanners, printers - how will they all 
work? What standards will this new UI adhere to?
