Why do you need to restore or rollback anything? The drivers usually just work and if they don't you just purge them and revert to older ones. System restore? ha, it's called a Live CD. Back up your junk from that and reinstall.

Windows has those two "features" because of how badly it was needed due to crashing and incompatibilities with that OS. Linux doesn't suffer even remotely from many of the problems of Windows; hence why you don't see those features. And like TemporalBeing said, most people don't even know how to use those features anyway they're mostly there for those PC Repair people to use. I should know, I use to repair Windows Computers.

You want to know how we fixed your problems most of the time? We backed all your stuff up and reinstalled the OS. Something you could've done yourself. That's your System Restore and Rollback, something we hardly bothered to use since most of the time it created more problems than it solved.

You plan to launch these Nuclear Weapons at whom exactly? Terrorists don't have a home and I assure you, on a long enough time-line, Terrorists will get their hands on something Nuclear and detonate it.

That Country will be looking for someone to blame.

As for World Wars, we should be looking at China. I'd place every Penny I own that China would be the instigator for that War.

I've also been finding better prices at local stores like Walmart. The best thing about that is I don't need to wait for an Item to ship. I've found that it's mostly the 3rd party sellers that are inflating prices on Amazon like $99 so-called "Rare" DVDs that can be found on EBay for $20 or less.

I've also noticed things like when you add an Item to your Cart and leave it for awhile (30 min); the price will go up. Take it out and the price will go back down. Amazon really needs to take a hard look at the practices of Sellers.

"Not have a life" I never understood this, two hours on Saturday and two hours on Sunday isn't taking anything away from peoples lives especially if you really enjoy what you're doing. If coding feels like an inconvenience to you, perhaps a different hobby would suit you better.

"The US is politically fatigued by war."

We'll see about that when a Republican is elected next time by holding his hands in the air and chanting nonsense about "Freedom" and how we need to "Protect" it. Since I was born in 1978, EVERY Republican has had some sort of War/Invasion while the Democrats try to stay away, save a few pin-prick Air Strikes to keep the Warmongers happy.

War is obsolete in my opinion, we as a WORLD can't advance until we learn to live together on this tiny Blue Planet.

Every nonzero finite dimensional inner product space has an orthonormal basis. It makes sense, when you don't think about it.
