New operating system is a chameleon
Author: JT Smith
From Wired: "A new operating system can be customized to appear however you want it to. Athena will run on Macs, Windows or Linux, and uses XML components to change its appearance." Can it be all things to all people? Supposedly, developers can write one source code base that will work on all those kernels, without modifications. Sounds like a tall order.
