You're not joking about the marketroidism :-) And I quote:
"intent® enables the delivery of products, applications and data
services that synchronize consumer expectations with the revenue
required to sustain the network operators, device manufacturers,
silicon vendors, content developers and application providers."
Applying a very slightly lossy compression algorithm one gets:
"Piss in my bucket and I'll piss in yours"
Is this "Tao@" the same as the compile-to-VM-based and then
JIT-compile-to-native-if-you-can parallel processing OS called
Taos (a UK-based firm IIRC) which turned up in the heyday of
Transputer-flavoured multiprogamming at the end of the 80s and
the start of the 90s (1980s and 1990s, that is)?
