I'd second this. I'm an academic (actually an ethnomusicologist), who's got a personal interest in human-computer interaction. One way to think about the NewtonOS is as a particular way of working with words, ideas, and so forth--kind of a particular way of imagining the world. If there's no way to interact with a Newton after the coming year, this way of imagining / interacting with the world is more or less lost to us, and that's a very sad (cultural / ideational) loss.
