Holy Hannah, is it Friday already!? Actually, I think technically it’s Saturday where I’m located @ in the shadow of the Wasatch Mountains, but the O’Reilly servers are in the Pacific Time Zone, so when I hit post, you won’t realize that I actually missed my self imposed Friday night deadline > Of course, now you do.
I need to learn how to keep my mouth shut.
So here’s the deal: I am holding out what I had planned for today (which is a *BIG PHAT* demo of the wonderful new ccHost 4.0 release) because it exposes one of the underlying sub-projects of the the Viberavetions Project, and I haven’t had a chance to discuss with the BizDev folks whether or not they would have a heart attack if I were to somewhat launch one these aforementioned sub-projects without their blessing.
My guess is “YES!”.
Therefore we wait… ;-)
Peter Fisk speculates,
Let’s start with a definition of these terms:
* Google is a company that named itself after a (very big) number
* Limbo is a concurrent programming language
* Inferno is a distributed operating system
* “Plan 9 from Outer Space” is a leading candidate for the worst movie ever made - and was the inspiration for the name of a research operating system called “Plan 9 from Bell Labs” (from which both Limbo and Inferno derive)
And what ties all of these things together?
Well, to start with, Google is hosting a project called “inferno-os” to get developers involved with the the Inferno operating system.
via the inferno-os project@Google Code,
Inferno® is a distributed operating system, originally developed at Bell Labs, but now developed and maintained by Vita Nuova®. Applications written in Inferno’s concurrent programming language, Limbo, are compiled to its portable virtual machine code (Dis), to run anywhere on a network in the portable environment that Inferno provides. Unusually, that environment looks and acts like a complete operating system.
And once I get the heads up “OK” from the Vibe* BizDev folks, more goodness to follow in regards to ccHost 4.0. <- Most definitely hot stuff! ;-)
Bye for now…
