Woz told us (1983?) that Jobs had two obsessions:
That Apple survive IBM
That USA survive Japan.

There were presumably OTHER obsessions, but those two were the relevant 
ones in the conversation.
Japan in those presumably became China.

We don't have domestic production, and we don't have repair.

. . .and yet, almost all programming languages are still English oriented.
Yes, there exist Chinese ports of COBOL compilers,
Forth would seem to me to be a good choice for the postfix aspects of 
Japanese, . . .
