I have no idea what it tastes like because its ludicrously expensive. Holland and Barrett sell quite a few brands of it. Most are packaged in watery bags which suggests the noodles themselves are saturated with water and lose their cohesion if they're allowed to dry out.
Pascal eventually overcame many of its shortcomings but by then it was too late. C (and the emerging C++) had already gained dominance and mindshare.
If Steam support Linux at all it's only coincidental to their efforts to make this handful work on certified SteamOS machines, or more realistically on whatever cloud platform Valve are cooking up. Other Linux systems can go hang.
SpaceShip One touched space and all elements were recovered and flew to space again.
BO's demonstration is more publicity than practical rocketry. It doesn't look like the aerodynamic elements of BO's current rocket are suitable for recovery after orbital injection, just after a straight up-down space tourism flight with no potential for orbit, just like SpaceShip One (and Two). They can't put an object in space and have it stay in orbit. They can just take dudes up for a short and expensive view and a little time in zero gee.
It's going to be real history when SpaceX recovers the first stage after an orbital injection, in that it will completely change the economics of getting to space and staying there.
Simpler approach: drop him in the middle of a minefield with his device, and wish him luck.
"500 years burning alive anyone who practiced science"?
I assume this is a troll, or just a bad joke.
Horses need to be fed, watered, cleaned-up after, and groomed. They sometimes get sick with a huge variety of different ailments, which need to be cured in lots of different ways --- you can't just swap in a new part. They have personalities and moods. They grow, get old and die. Outsourcing all that is not really practical because most of it happens where they're stabled; if you outsource that then it's comparable to a taxi, not a personally owned car.
Some gadgetry gives much better cost-benefit than others. ABS braking seems like a high payoff. General-purpose OS running an entertainment system connected to the CAN bus, not so much.
I like work; it fascinates me; I can sit and look at it for hours.
