You are very welcome. Here is a great long term plan with robots:

Japan Dreams of Robot Moon Base in 2025

Advanced humanoid robots could take over mining, telescope-building chores for humans.

Paul Kallender, IDG News Service
Monday, June 20, 2005

TOKYO -- Japan wants to help build a lunar base and populate it with advanced versions of today's humanoid robots by around 2025, according to the head of the nation's space agency.

The idea is more than a pipe-dream; it is part of a 20-year plan, called JAXA Vision 2025, that was drawn up by Keiji Tachikawa, a former president of Japan's largest mobile operator NTT DoCoMo, who is now president of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency(JAXA).

With so many robots working as a swarm imagine what would happen if they were on Windows and something went wrong ?

Not on Linux, they are not going to crash. There is a good chance that Robots might take over, if not atleast come very close.

Japanese scientists have unveiled the most human-looking robot yet devised - a "female" android called Repliee Q1.

Just like man moved beyond transistors etc., to chips, I believe the time has come for man to move from the generation of PCs/Linux to something beyond. We are going to see developments in this regard in the future.
