The current situation with Plan 9 folks are contemplating the design for handling a global namespace (with security built-in). We are now entering the world of research. No answers quite yet, but a lot of ideas. Some smart folks are saying that there isn't a need for a global namespace because we don't have a need for one yet. I think a new way to access global data is close at hand, but I won't get into conspiracy theories. > Note that for most users, pay-per-view seems to be acceptable.

Along those lines, we just need a distributed working environment that allows access from anywhere so that you can manipulate your data anyway you like? That might be 10-15 years down the line; dunno. In the interim, we'll probably get the ability to export operating systems and their environments as a container per se, then move our environment around where we need it. This is what Xen allows us to do. After that we'd probably get over the idea of multiple environments and settle for just one that does it all. Well perhaps the younger generation will move to it, older folks like us probably won't. ;-) -uva
