[ale] Curl Linux Technology Preview



Hmmmm, yes it would be nice to have one language to do it all... but I
wonder if the creators of this proprietary language would hold the rest of
the world hostage.. oh, sorry, I forgot about C#  and Bill's cronies
constantly hovering around the wwwc trying to get MS stuff blessed by them
as "standards"...  No wonder the Open Source types are breaking off (or
maybe broken off ?).

It looks just like what we started with... simple terminals hanging off of a
big server ... what's that saying "the more things change the more they stay
the same" ?
