Well yeah, sort of.   It's a genetic mutation that is a further step 
on the chain of OS evolution.  Kind of like a transition from homo 
erectus to homo sapiens neanderthalis.  While erectus used simple and 
blunt tools, neanderthalis used more complex assemblies of tools. 
Erectus never did find a cure for these "birth defects".   :P
