I would appreciate if all who reads this take a few minutes of your busy 
schedule to respond to the address below.

As programmers I feel that you are the most important group of people to 
consider when planning and developing an operating system. Given the 
resources (environment and tools), I feel that a programmer that truly 
cares about his/her craft can and will develop "quality" products that 
can keep their customers satisfied.

As end users of the products that other programmers are writing, I'm 
sure you have had moments when you were disappointed with those 
products. So to each of you I ask:

1) If in "your" perfect world, an operating system was able to provide 
you with everything you needed you do you job, what would it be providing?

2) How does your current fail in comparison to "your vision" of the 
perfect system?

3) How close to your vision would that system have to come in order for 
you to make the switch?

4) What you consider the "fair" market value for such a system?

5) What area of programming do you specialize in?

Please submit all responses to the following address:

char[] email() {
   char[] at = " ", dot = ".";
   char[] account = "acedwards", com = "ieee", dom = "org";
   return (account ~ at ~ com ~ dot ~ dom);
}

Thanks in advance,
Andrew Edwards
