Yeah, you do see them used sometimes for banking applications

Thats enough already. Especially because the vast amount of users, plus the constant exploits and security updates
Speaking of Flash. JavaScript can handle web applications much better today than Java applets and Flash

Obviously it's in decline now, but Flash had at least ten- and probably closer to fifteen- years at the top, whereas Java Applets never took off in the first place

Thats true for the web, but Java as a language, has a much larger code base than Flash.

I agree that classic capitalism seems outdated. And i don't see a big difference between a moderate capitalist and a moderate social democrat today anyways.
Pragmatic thinking doesn't really have any political resting place, but often leads to extreme cynicism when weighing own beliefs/needs against others. So that's out, if you ask me.
Liberalism seems like the most sustainable system and reasonable starting point, without inflicting more system/damage than necessary.
There will always be government spending including as much internal abuse as possible.
One of the factors that should have driven government spending down significantly, is automated processes via. IT (old subject)
But as long as the IT governance and implementation management is handled by government officials, one only can be sure that IT spending will surpass JSF, maned mission(s) to Mars and beyond and what else you can think of. Throw in the LHC too.
Maybe the politicians are stupid, maybe corrupt or just numb or too occupied with throwing crap at each other
One thing is for sure, government spending is always running amok, same issues, same excuses
Perhaps we could lower government wages enough to make it profitable taking a job in the private sector, where people actually make money?

(Score:5, Insightful) Oh yeah...Duh!

socialism is found in scandinavia, belgium, netherlands, france, and the former western-germany

Thats quite a postulate i would say.
Uhm.. and you forgot to mention England, Ireland, Italy, Spain, Greece and the remaining shitload of countries united by EU.
Given the high degree of nepotism ( corruption ) found in those countries, that you mentioned, i would question what you call socialism, as i would question, the
meaning of communism found in Korea.
Perhaps you (as a non AC) could tell when communism actually worked ( for the people )?
And what the actual difference between socialism and communism, except from the level of sophistication, really is?

There is so many things happening in front of our noses when looking into the sky. But we just don't see it.
Sub atomic particles are orders of magnitude more energetic, than what we can achieve here on earth.
Star births, supernovas and gamma ray bursts happen regularly, just waiting to be detected, recorded and analyzed.
More and more detailed data on extrasolar planets are gathered every day.
More telescopes please!

If node.js doesn't fit your production needs don't use it ( if you can't figure out how to harness a nonblocking architecture that is ). However there is a reason why node.js is gaining popularity everyday. If you want a solid scalable frontend development platform use node.js. FFS use node.js everyday!
