Alternative perspective:
what is needed is a standard (that fits an operating environment) to

be usable. Microsoft DOS was an open environment in the sense that it 
allowed a LOT of software development. Do I have that right, historians?

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or 
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
