Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That would be more interesting than trying to enforce standards first and innovate around them later.

In fact there's a fair amount of research in Comp Sci (sic). There are even alternative OS models that are more interesting than anything that's been commercialised.

Problem is, it's not interesting to corporates and it would take too much time/money to make it economic.

What will probably happen instead is a new wave of stuff that's computing++ - a completely different hardware/software/philosophical model, completely new applications, and none of the baggage we have now.

Getting to there from here would be more interesting than trying to reinvent what's around today and make it the-same-but-better.
