If you want to know what Jesus would say and do you should read The Bible yourself. He's quoted heavily in the first half of the New Testament. Don't listen to what Christians these days say he would or wouldn't do or say. Obviously they don't actually read it themselves and don't know because you have gained a seriously warped idea of what Jesus actually stood for. Most of the lessons his famous parables are meant to teach were actually economic nature.

Have you ever actually booted Linux on a raspberry pi or booted a C64 and actually used it? Your question is akin to asking "why would anyone want to ride a bicycle down the street when they could just ride the bicycle around inside the back of a 18-wheeler while it drives down the street?"

Ok, you're right. I'm sorry, that was completely pointless. In all seriousness, what is probably most telling about the time period in computing and why there is still such a following today is in the second sentence of its wikipedia page; "Listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the highest-selling single computer model of all time, independent estimates place the actual number sold between 10 and 17 million units."

While its true that shortly after that era the "IBM PC revolution" effectively fragmented individual model counts so far that counting sales based on single model figures became a pointlessly obscure metric to gauge the total picture of the market, it also remains true that at that point the highest-end IBM models could only do 4 screen colors simultaneously (compared to the Commodore's 16) and 1 sound at a time (compared to the Commodore's 3) even for years after the practical extinction of the C64 from a sales perspective, and that there is still to date no single other model of personal computer that ever achieved such market penetration, and most likely there also never will be again.


Theo De Raadt's Small Rant On OpenSSL 301

It is worth the 5 second read because it is how a few thousand of us feel about the whole thing and the stupidity that caused this panic." Update: 04/10 15:20 GMT by U L : Reader pointed out Ted Unangst (the Ted in the mailing list post) wrote two posts on the issue: "heartbleed vs malloc.conf and "analysis of openssl freelist reuse" for those seeking more detail.
