It would be amazing, and extraordinarily wonderful, if separation of various “processes” could happen on different computers.
By which I mean, I could have a not-so-powerful computer that’s a file server and the authentication hub; a cheap laptop as the terminal; a big, high-power computer as the main CPU with which computationally-intensive work is done; and they would all speak to each other over the internet, using directly connected cable, or via other means if applicable.
By which I mean, I want Redox to steal some of the amazing abilities that plan9 and 9front have.
This probably requires the creation of some sort of protocol for doing the necessary things over interchangeable (and hopefully stackable) communication means (ssh over ethernet, or via irc via pigeon carrier, etc). Plan9 had 9P.
