Adam, I don't think you understand the scope of CLI/CTS/CIL/VES ...
Think of it tthis way:
The internet is your system, the local Area Network is your system, your system is your system.
You are not constrained to the OS level, but rather your OS choice is just your local interface to the big network system.
Rather than an OS and it's applications you can move across platforms by just porting the VP part, you have applications you can run on any OS for which a VES has been written for.
More like running VP Hosted and any platform, rather than running VP native on different hardware.
The biggest difference is that the OS becomes alot less important for running a range of applications that can tie in togther with many other application over the net.
The concept of AmigaDE, as has been communicaed in public, means you have to move the application around, rather than just accessing the application where ever they are on the net.
Are you understanding the difference?
I'm sure that if for AROS a CLI (Common Language Infastructure) was made, or ported from the mono or dotgnu efforts, then you'd be able to use AROS as your local user interface of net accesable applications, cept with the GPL application, you will be able to download the applications and source to your local machine raher then running them off the slower internet. Though some of these applications you or others sew together may rely onhaving application out on the net collecting information....
Understand there is some common ground here with the CLI that MS and GNU have in common and these two together doesd present a prett big mass to try and compete against (note that mono and dotgnu are of such nature to be used by other OSI operating systems like freeBSD, MacOSX, etc...).
It's more likely that Amigas NDA and Double NDA secret is just hype to generate excitement about what probably amounts to Amiga themselves making use of this CLI technology. It'd certainly help explan how SHEEP can be a scripting language, an interpreted language and a compiled language.
And it's certainly evidenced that Amiga really isn't creating something new as much as they are simply using what already exist.
