LINA: like Java, but different

| I hope companies that make "essential" software will start using
| this, to gain a few more users. That will make operating systems,
| and therefore proprietary operating systems, irrelevant. Then again,
| those same companies didn't use wine, an easier approach for them to
| go fully cross-platform.

| The idea is that developers will be able to create programs for one
| platform, and they'll be able to run on three different operating
| systems. This could both expand the market for open source Linux
| applications, and cut down work for developers. Lina will be free
| for open source developers, while a licensing fee will apply to
| commercial developers.
