It wouldn't. But a lot of embedded systems --- numerically, by far the
majority --- do not include provisions for someone to connect via a
serial connection to setup things.

EROS is not a UNIX-like OS. It is probably less like UNIX than any OS
you've ever used; in particular, it's much less like UNIX than VMS,
MS-DOS, MacOS, ITS, Windows, and Windows NT are. If you've used MVS,
you have used an OS that is farther from UNIX than EROS is.

The Internet stock bubble didn't burst on 1999-11-08. Hurrah!
The power didn't go out on 2000-01-01 either. :)
