Wow, Phipps better be careful having that much clue in a company as big
as IBM. If he does eventually get it they will chain him in the basement
and give him a plate of fish heads once a day.

We should start a FoRK pool for when he bails to a startup. :)

But if IBM really does join those of us that realized years ago that the
OS and hardware are irrelivant, then there is some tiny hope for them
yet, despite themselves and Java.
