I have also wondered how close Xanadu <http://www.xanadu.net/> is to
being a usable system. It sounds like a lot of good thought has gone
into it. It has gone Open Source <http://udanax.com/>, the source is
in Smalltalk and Squeak is mentioned as a likely candidate for
porting <http://udanax.com/gold/index.html>. A Smalltalk to C++
converter is mentioned.
Has anyone looked at Xanadu in any depth? What are it's drawbacks?
Why isn't it going places in a hurry? Or is it?
