The video looks neat, and I don't see any reason at this point why we wouldn't be there in 10 years. In fact, for a great deal of the part we already are. I wonder, though, if it will be MS that will bring it to us.

I believe Microsoft will bring it to us in 2020. Their problem is that a lot of others will have brought it to us looooooooooong before then.

Odd, it doesn't seem to want to work at all, in fact no video from msn works, I haven't noticed this before ... probably because I never go there. Other flash sites work just fine tho, including youtube.

If the schedule is completed on time, it will run Slackware 13.1 and support an early alpha release of Perl 6. Emacs 24 is expected to come out shortly after release. Revolutionary new advances in instant-feedback marketing will reveal the desire to have wallpaper of cute kittens with funny captions.
