 another 'thus spoke' Dijkstra

Dijkstra was also a Burroughs research fellow.

In his support for Burroughs he wrote an internal document which
supported Burroughs hardware/software structure over all the other
mainframe machines, in particular IBM.

He felt that is was only time before Burroughs would blow them out of
the water.

Burroughs had an interesting stack, arithmics, and channel design but
he was wrong there.

The computer world is still catching up with ideas that Burroughs
first had working in the 1960s and 1970s.  The spirit lives on!
