Hi john,

Nice heads-up. I hadn't heard of this before, despite reading several of the
comics' views on Vista.

It looks promising, although without good command line editing and the 
to create active GUIs it will be limited. But then, you can't do GUIs in 
bash either...

But an OO pipeline is interesting, I wonder how long before somebody in 
comes up with a new shell mechanism for that?

Thanks again,

Alan G.
