Workstations et al. We should also INSIST on
interoperability and portability when we talk
to computer manufacturers. I do not wish to
think about the time I have wasted trying to
get data from one incompatible format into
another, or trying to find a version of a program
which works satisfactorily on one platform
onto another.

Life is too short to have to deal with non-problems.
