I think the unique ability to run existing x86 (or recompile manually optimized for x86 c programs) at native speed is one of the reasons many of us stick with Intel architectures, it gives them a very strong tactical advantage. It would also alienate many strong key advice givers in the machine purchasing decision making process if their home Intel game collection was suddenly nixed by a capricious ogre like hardware maker.
I'm laughing. It was not VAX “Job Control Language”! So Zeek and Zed must be the Gods of “Zee” OS. Smart A wing tip wizard is required in your analogy, in effect

Writing COBOL is not just easy, it's fun! It takes about a fortnight to work through the manual and become fluent. It uses very English like syntax. It's much easier than FORTRAN or C as it's so small! Lets face it in this world of UNIX massively parallel cloud social web computing, this is hardly a complex problem to solve – it's already been done by the folks that wrote COBOL. A simple database! So get that manual out, and have a try!
No, you guessed wrong! That's not what I meant. I know what I meant, I know that I'm right, but I won't enumerate why deliberately.
That's not the only machine that you've broken with that mistake

Q. Who was REALLY asked over analogue TV broadcasting and CEEFAX in the UK? A. Nobody
This stuff's all gibberish, NONE of these kids understand either religion or science at all. False opposite stereotyping of reality based psychosis with a parental paranoid bent. I've never seen North Koreans type any item so dumb, but then again they're all witches. You can tell by their badge
What happens if there is a higher than nominal inflation period in the interim time between the new longer budget cycle decision points? Could that be factored into the equation?
I don't believe this story, I think these kids are fake.
Who can you trust? Yourself! Burn them onto double sided blue ray disks and keep them in two of your locations in a fireproof safe.
If you follow "Scott Maxwell" in google plus, there are some great snippets about the landing and software. See: https://plus.google.com/u/0/112648317373638762082/posts
That's a chance that we'll have to take!
Drop the green, that's a nasty mistake!
