Tim, you're trying to emphasize a different point than I am. Frankly, I'm not overly interested in the "pie in the sky" approach, but more interested in using technologies like VP to quickly develop products for mass consumption. In the future companies like Apple or Amiga can port their OS to another platform to free themselves of the restrictions of the present technology. Similarly, Microsoft can port their OS to a VP style plaform so it can run on different H/W with binary portability for even further market penetration.
These are things that can be accomplished in the short term and are very and also apply to smaller consumer good like PDA's and STB's. I think you see this this technology as some kind of "IT Glasnost" whereas I see the technology making things easier for big businesses to make products that more people can use. From a business point of view, I see this type of technology benefiting the hardware and the software companies and driving competition because it opens up options available to those companies.
