It's amazing how bad "educated" people can be with grammer and punctuation. The apostrophe and comma are probably the two most misused punctuation elements - but seriously, if you're going to post on slashdot and have anyone take you seriously you need to learn to use them properly. CPU is an acronym for Central Processing Unit. When you pluralize that phrase, you add an S to the end of unit. What you wrote is "Central Processing Unit's" ... and those CPUs sure aren't owning anything in what you said.

C++ is the best example of second-system effect since OS/360.
