Comment Re:Presumed innocent?? (Score -1) 203

A person is INNOCENT until proven guilty, not the other way around.

I think you are a little bit confused about this. If a person committed a crime he is not innocent no matter if this was proven or not. Just because his innocence or non-innocence is not known, he doesn't become magically innocent. The same way a criminal does not magically change his state from innocent to non-innocent just because a judge read his verdict. This is why people are presumed innocent - to avoid hardship for the suspect who are indeed innocent. However, since fumbling in their mouth with a cotton swap can hardly account of "hardship" taking their DNA is a reasonable measure, in particular since it helps fighting crimes.

Secondly, exactly who is it who says (or can demonstrate) that cracking a Mac or Linux box is easier than a Windows box? My experience is exactly the opposite.

So you say. But I found that a sledgehammer works for cracking any system.

If bankers can count, how come they have eight windows and only four tellers?
