  • Don't complain about lack of options. You've got to pick a few when you do multiple choice. Those are the breaks.
  • Feel free to suggest poll ideas if you're feeling creative. I'd strongly suggest reading the past polls first.
  • This whole thing is wildly inaccurate. Rounding errors, ballot stuffers, dynamic IPs, firewalls. If you're using these numbers to do anything important, you're insane.

    So apparently everyone on slashdot is expected to be a developer? WTF

    Exactly. There is a whole lot more to IT than writing software. The unix admins, windows admins, other OS admins, DBAs, network people, telecoms people, hardware people, user support people, and so on must outnumber developers by at least 10 to 1.

    And there is a whole lot more to writing software than IT and desktop computing. I am an embedded software developer. I also do some electronics and design work in that area. I write software for microcontrollers that typically have say 4k of RAM and run at 8MHz or less. No OS, no C++ or object oriented stuff, just raw C and assembler on the bare metal.

You can bring any calculator you like to the midterm, as long as it doesn't dim the lights when you turn it on. -- Hepler, Systems Design 182
