  Well, I disagree.  If you can do something right that has been done
  wrong umpteen times before, you will find few programmers more
  willing to seize the opportunity do it right than Lisp programmers.
  I think that's why designing a LispOS has an appeal to begin with.

  If this is not what you expected, please alter your expectations.
