Features, Office "It was the most radical computer dream of the hacker era. Ted Nelson's Xanadu project was supposed to be the universal, democratic hypertext library that would help human life evolve into an entirely new form. Instead, it sucked Nelson and his intrepid band of true believers into what became the longest-running vaporware project in the history of computing - a 30-year saga of rabid prototyping and heart-slashing despair. The amazing epic tragedy." Please note that this is an older article, from 1995, and that it is 27 pages long.

"This article signals a sad new low in the blogification of OSNews

From the "Contact us" page:

Our goal is to inform our readers with the latest news on a vast range of operating systems and computing environments, [blaat] it's important to stress that though our focus is operating systems, there will always be other computing-related news that catches our attention.

Something tells me you haven't read this 27-page article at all. It might be about the history of computing, but top understand the future, one must know the past.

Just don't the read the articles you don't like.
