   I don't believe you.

Yes you do.  You just want me to do some legwork for you.  However, I
did see where I needed to make a correction -- the Net Appliance boom
was 2000-2001, not 1999.

   In other words, could you be more specific so that we can compare
   and contrast the critical details, as well as learn from past

If only your letter had started with "Could you be. . ."

_Ellison trumpets client/server, announces Net appliance ..._
_CNN - Linux-based Net appliance targets home - November 12, 1999_

   iterations of being tried out through losing implementations.

Yeah, but you have to learn from the losers.
