>>Now that's too much! How can I not use your OS?<<

Well, when it's bootable, I'll be happy to share it. Hope you like Gnome2. To be honest, I had actually thought about what you had said in your editorial for years, and it kind of lit a fire under my a$$ to try it out and see if it would work.

That's the first time I saw that, now I've got to do some rethinkin'. I had come up with a hybrid of your ideas from the editorial, the LinuxSTEP Filesystem Hierarchy Specification, and a couple of my own ideas.
