A possible future
UML/Apache becomes widely used
- UML becomes a must-have for all Apache platforms
- ditto if UML is embedded in other things
Vendors port UML if necessary
UML runs on all major architectures and OSes
Linux becomes a universal development / execution environment
Linux becomes the default development / execution environment
Here I describe what could happen if embedded UML takes off. UML inside Apache would become a required feature for all platforms which run Apache. This would be even more true if UML is embedded in other things.
So, the vendors who control those platforms would themselves port UML if necessary, resulting in UML running on all major platforms (including both architectures and OSes).
This would make Linux a universal development and execution environment, and would possible make Linux the default development and execution environment for anyone doing cross-platform development. They could write for Linux and run their applications inside UML on other OSes.
