off and running
Although the OSI ideology was initially promoted in the hacker community, upon Netscape’s release of Navigator’s source code, programmers from all walks of life began to offer suggestions and fixes to improve the browser’s performance. The OSI mission was off and running, as the mainstream computing world began to embrace the idea.

Chris De Burgh - Sailor Lyrics
Underneath a silver moon, the ship is like a ghost,
She's been out there for a week, just waiting for the wind to blow,
But now she's off and running, and there's nothing I can do,
'Cos I am just a prisoner here until this war is through,
And I'm singing,
Sailor, can you hear me,
Sailor, hear my call,
Sailor, take me with you,
Sailor, take me home...
