Much ado about scripting, Linux & Eclipse: card subject to change


No patch for human stupidity

Pity, that. Just finished reading Greg Bear's novel 'Darwin's Radio', which suggests that at least at some point in the future, we - as a species - can look forward to an upgrade, if not a patch. In the meantime, we have to endure the ongoing barrage of idiocy out there, including all the anti-Microsoft malware out there, which has actually gotten them to the point of suggesting that recovery requires reinstallation, something I've been saying since the NT3.5 days. ;-) Well, that and that a Microsoft operating system typically has a half-life of just under 2 years before it becomes functionally useless, either just from use or from infection. kubuntu, anyone?
