I think you misspelled "could afford" as "buy". It's an easy mistake to make when it comes to Apple and personal computing.

Considering the first graphical web browser was written for the Next Operating system, I'm going to assume that your stupid little rant is to make you feel better about hating Windows (wow! aren't you a rebel!) and less about anything to do with software development... of which you obviously know nothing.

I was waiting for somebody to fall into the "BUT LIBRARIES!" trap...

You do realize that you just said that Windows 8 now follows the UNIX PHILOSOPHY because boy oh boy does it have libraries!

Oh... but you didn't really mean that you say? You meant.. MODULAR instead right? Well in that case, if you actually knew anything about SystemD, you would know that it *is* modular almost to a fault so that's no it either.

It sounds great in theory but...
1. If you really buy that principle and want to enforce it religiously, then please never use a web browser again (even Lynx!), not to mention any other complex program that isn't formed from a bunch of small "do one thing well!" utilities that are executed in a pipeline.

2. Please tear up your Richard Stallman fanclub cards because what little software he's written has mostly been Emacs and Emacs is the anti-UNIX based on the "pure" UNIX philosophy.

That't the issue: Every single person who hates SystemD because "UNIX PHILOSOPHY!!" has no problem violating that philosophy to actually get things done in a whole bunch of other areas. That's not even bringing up the fact that SystemD is.. wait for it... built from a bunch of individual utilities that can actually be used by non-systemd programs.

Are these comfortable suits cheaper than normal clothing from automated production lines that I find equally comfortable? If they aren't as cheap, what is the justification for suffering the increased cost? What utilitarian value are they going to bring? (And increased washing costs and smug feeling about wearing fancy dresses don't count.)

You could as well ask the opposite question: what's wrong with not wearing a suit?

Every professional workplace has an expectation of a formal atire.

Would that be satisfied with me wearing a pocket protector? :-p

What is wrong with requiring suits over the usual office shirts and pants?

Again, if they are "usual", there can't be anything wrong with them, so what's the problem with wearing those?

If I have not seen so far it is because I stood in giant's footsteps.

Working...
