To be sure, there are some that do both, though there is only so much time
in a day.  Ask Maurice sometime about his vision of GEOS -- I heard him
discuss it at the Spring '99 Expo.  It's very interesting.  Of course, he's
decided to work on other things instead, and far be it from me to criticize
his chosen direction. :)

Yea, I guess discussions like these do get olde after awhile.  The way I
look at it though is that while we Commie lovers keep hoping and dreaming
for better things, it is only because we feel that our beloved architecture,
chipset, OS, etc, has VALUE, and that it would only take a few extending
pushes to bring it back on top.  It becomes much more tolerable if you think
of it that way, I've found.

This is of course not directed at you in particular, but in my less than
humble opinion this is exactly one of the major problems with the modern
C= community -- dreaming is so much easier than doing that little gets

Worse, it is as you say a pastime, a kind-of game; lacking seriousness.
I am quite sure that I'm not the only one who stopped reading comp.sys.cbm
for that reason -- that almost nobody is actually serious about what
they're talking and dreaming about.

Even worse, is I can point to several modern dreamers who used to be
productive hardware and software doers.

And finally, I don't think I've ever seen people like Jolse or Maurice

(Sorry, this has been on my chest for many years now!)
