Andreesen knows not what he's talking about (1)

Harlan879 (878542) | about 5 years ago | (#28618131)

From the New York Times ( http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/08/technology/companies/08operate.html?hp [nytimes.com] )

Uh, no. It's not. It might be a reasonable approach to a lightweight GUI for an OS, but it doesn't do any of the following: memory management, device management, process management, disk management, I/O management, network management, etc, etc, etc.
