On the future of computers:
newsforge.com/newsforge/03/0...

These are some interesting ideas, and I have had some ideas about what a more ideal computer world would look like (but they are not particularily refined).  I think we might benefit by giving programs less freedom to do what it wants with a computer.  I think I want something in between what OS'es do now (e.g. programs running in windows), and a GameBoy Advance playing a GameBoy advance game.

What is needed is well defined.  I want to edit pixels; I want to organize text; I want to view the internet.  I don't need a program that optimizes my hard drive, or goes in any freaky "full-screen" modes.  In fact, I would rather that programs weren't capable of it.

(Disclaimer: this flies in the face of some other things I think.)
