SubjectRe: Ken Thompson interview in IEEE Computer magazine (fwd)

why would one OS be better than any other in something like this? I
don't see any reason linux couldnt do something like this.

(please erase my ignorance)

When people compare systems, they are usually speaking from the
standpoint of "what can the thing do _now_" not "what could it be made
to do".

Linux can be made to do a lot of things, but it doesn't do them now.

What a system can do now is what will drive most people to decide to
use it at the moment.
