Windows was not a true OS until Windows 95
That ran on MSDOS as well, all the way up to Win ME. WinNT was the cut down VMS inspired thing that finally got us off the cut down CP/M clone.
Microsoft have always been a "me too" company, which is a description not a criticism since it was often about doing something involved on far cheaper hardware than the competition.
It's "twilight" for people who think they were born to rule.
The entire theme was anti-cronyism
How do you explain Dagny if that was the case? The theme was about how nice it would be to have the nobility, such as Dagny, back in charge
So, instead of hiding behind name dropping that has nothing to do with the topic please let us know why you think a government that is unable to function, thus letting the unelected run things, is such a good thing?
Until you have, there is no possibility of having a rational discussion.
Pretending to take offence and be too stupid to get the point is cowardice.

Good point, it appears that instead you may be advocating something more like the Iranian model where there are elected officials but they have no actual say in running the country.
Is that more like it?
If not, then say what you mean instead of this childish shit of suggesting we are better of with something other than an elected government.
I disagree. We do _not_ need the "cheap" programmers as what they write has negative worth. The reason C persists is simple: It is the best tool for quite a few jobs and it is a good tool in the hands of an expert. The damage caused is indeed unnecessary, but it is never a tool's fault when it is wielded incompetently.
