You're new here, eh?

If it were that easy, don't you think it might have been done already?

Here's a hint...

There's this thing about scale (and I'll ignore code reliability, non-
proneness to instability, FPs, etc) that your formulation skips over so
simply. You see, human language is (well, "can be") so cunningly,
deceptively compressive. It's monstrously trivial and non-time-
consuming to write something like:

Please go ahead.

You (and however many monkeys) go and do that (oh, and BTW, the
licensing model is not actually irrelevant here -- as you come to
realize how complex actually doing that is, and the money you could
make doing a non-OSS-licensed version of something extremely distant
from that but still actually useful to the otherwise mostly clueless
(aka "the great unwashed") computer users... Oh, sorry, I forgot you
were idealizing at a totally reality-divorced level!!! Just ignore a
grizzled old fart like me who knows how shite actually works...).
