The Quiet Before the Next IT Revolution

andrew71 What about security (145 comments)

I don't subscribe to this rose-tinted point of view, especially if you look at all this beautiful tech from the security standpoint.
Most of the tech we deal with today was originally designed without security concerns. In most cases, security is an afterthought.
So much for sitting back and taking a break.

The Future of Closed Source Software and Linux

andrew71 Re:What software developers have told me (566 comments)

Now, I'll confess that this attitude has been diminishing as Linux eeks its way into the mainstream.

Now, what you call diminishing, I call distinguishing.

One should always understand his very nature, and going against it is always a bad mistake in the long run. That is, of course, provided that it's a good nature, and I guess that's the point in case here.
