Predictions for Java (9 - November - 97)
  Java, despite what I see are the efforts of
some to adulterate and control it, is going
to become the dominant interface for NetWork
and Machine control.  The write once and run
anywhere concept is simply  too powerful and 
long sought after an ideal to simply go away.

  I see a Java operating system on the horizon
I thin Java will become an integral part of
the OS like it is already with OS2.
