I get that you realize that I have been right the whole time. No need to throw baseless accusations.
You're still alive, old man?!
Well if it means we're going from small devices with small apps and small amounts of resources to suddenly making them full on desktop machines, I just don't see the point.
And that's totally fine. The point isn't what YOU want, it's what some private company wants to do and these actions will in no way, shape, or form negatively impact your life and thus getting all up in a huff about it is a little over the top.
What percentage of Android owners even remotely want any of this?
Users don't know what they want until it is provided to them and, honestly, if you don't want any part of it, that's cool but perhaps it will really help developers port their work cross-platform and bring us to a completely different level.
I would love to see Android or iOS apps come back across the divide in some cases, so there's likely a market in reverse.
No sense in getting all fired up about CodeWeavers doing this.
I can use my car to murder, maybe we should ban all of them?
No, but me might consider issuing licences for them and requiring only licensed users to use them...
They say an armed society is a polite society. I dare say they're correct. The next time you see someone brandishing a firearm in a mall stop and look around - how many people are running up to the gunman and insulting his mother? Who is sidling up behind him to bend over so that another one can come push him from the front so that he falls down and everybody has a good laugh? Nobody. That's who.
I don't know where you live, but I've never seen anyone at the all do any of things at the mall to anyone, period. Your comment just may be the saddest indictment of American culture that I read all day.
Interestingly, I've also heard a few estimates that roughly 60% of the guns recovered from criminals in Canada were smuggled across the border from the United States.
It's enough to make you wonder whether the U.S. implementing some effective method of gun control wouldn't decrease firearm deaths (and other violent crime) in all three countries.
Not to mention the relentless gaming of any measurement system by all parties that erodes whatever value it might have.
I have an illustrative anecdote:
A company that I used to worked for, decided to have a bug fixing contest. They decided that they would pay a bonus to their software developers for every bug they fixed so they could lower the defect rate on their software. At first the project seemed to be a roaring success, the number of fixed bugs climbed quickly, however, the budget for the bonuses ran out only a few weeks after the contest started. An examination of the payouts quickly raised suspicion among some of the managers running it. The numbers showed that some of the testers were finding more than 10 times the number of bugs that they used to find, while others were finding the exact same number. It didn't make sense because they weren't paying any bonuses to the testers. A short investigation revealed that some of the developers were deliberately including bugs in the code before they released their work to testing, some went so far as to tell their selected tester what and where the bug was, and then splitting the bug bounty with the tester who sent the bug back to them to fix. Of course, the developers and testers who were caught collaborating were all fired. However, the fake bug fixing displaced real testing work, and fewer real bugs were fixed during the contest, and the company had to recruit new people to replace the people they fired, so the defect rate went up because normal testing was displaced, some of the deliberate bugs actually made it through testing, and the new developers and new testers who replaced the people fired were not as familiar with the product and more problems slipped through while they were settling in to their new duties.
The moral, is that when money is involved it will not take long for people to figure out how to game the system, and quite possibly achieve the exact opposite of what they were supposed to being doing.
Sigh...you DO understand that the word fallacy does NOT always come with the word "logical" connected, yes?
Sigh... You DO understand that the title of the page you linked to was "Logical Fallacy: Loaded Words", yes?
And excuse me for not being willing to coddle the spoiled as fuck population, I suppose you want "trigger warnings" and all that bullshit?
I really couldn't care less about your arrogance and misanthropy, but it's probably part of the reason why people assume you're a jackass instead of thinking you're being clever. You might also want to keep Poe's Law in mind.
