OSNews, Generic OSes On December 28th, 2005 - a day which will live in anonymity - OSNews published an editorial of mine urging hobby and research operating system developers to implement Project UDI, because otherwise we (the small/ non-mainstream/ hobby/research OS community) would always wind up stuck with mutually incompatible sets of drivers for doing the same exact things. I also proclaimed that I would implement UDI for my own operating system kernel. Bad decision.

"The only nitpick I have is that the name EDI already has a meaning (Electronic Data Interchange - ANSI X12).

Maybe you should call it XDI instead? It has an 'X' in it, so it has to be cool, right?"

Eerr... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XDI, http://www.xdi.org etc. I guess any three letter acronym is used somewhere, as long as the context is clear, it's no problem, imho.
