"The PiperNet is both a network and a community-developed standard for the
peer-to-peer (P2P) distribution of programs and data-flow. It is an alternative to
Microsoft's .NET, not a clone.
The aim of the PiperNet is to bring the power and flexibility of the UNIX
command-line interface (CLI) to the graphical user interface (GUI) and to
Internet-distributed computing." Read the full press release at LinuxPR.
