  1. STREAMS

    In computer networking, STREAMS is the native framework in Unix System V for implementing character devices. STREAMS's design is a modular architecture for implementing full-duplex I/O between kernel or user space processes and between device drivers. Its most frequent uses have been in developing terminal I/O and networking subsystems. In System V Release 4, the entire terminal interface was reimplemented using STREAMS. An important concept in STREAMS is the ability to push drivers — custom code modules which can modify the functionality of a network interface or other device — together to form a stack. Several of these drivers can be chained together in order.

But $ 200 billion additional per year would be very significant on top of the $ 750 billion that we are already losing. Of course, there may be new revenue streams. We didn't hear about that today. But that can come.
