In a really sick and twisted way, it is.
However, inventing a guest operating system to be run
under UNIX and other platforms just for the sake of
running scsh (which is neat because it makes UNIX more usable)
seems just a wee bit on the backwards side to me.
But then, what do I know? I'm not a non-UNIX hacker either.
