This, like most rap beefs, is just media whoring.
You buy a new enclosure _if_ one is still available. It's not like you can just slap the drives into any chassis, even inside the same brand. It's definitely an issue worth mentioning, especially considering the OP's zeal, since it's easy to mistakenly overestimate the reliability of data on a NAS.
And what do you do when the NAS fails? A single NAS represents a single point of failure, unless you bought a spare enclosure.
That's part of the experience when you select the lowest cost provider.
The physical store advantage goes to Dollar General. Amazon is decimating Walmart on one demographic and Dollar General is killing them on the rest.

Migrating away from Oracle is a horrific, expensive task. And, because they'll want the same level of support that they had under Oracle, they'll hand all of the software licensing savings over to a third party vendor to support a free software solution.
It actually does a really great job at gathering data from backend stores and presenting it via web services or vice versa. Once you quit using it for HTML generation it works pretty well.

You consider string escaping, in any form, to be a good mechanism for interacting safely with the database?
In short, you have no idea what you are doing and you're blaming that on the language.
Maybe it's just you, though, because there's no shortage of perfectly functional sites out there that use PHP. Personally, I'd much rather look at PHP code, with explicit subroutine arguments, than Perl with the @_ BS .
The Kaspersky source code (completely ignoring the presence of any exploitable bugs) wouldn't be much value to anyone other than Kaspersky. The mechanism behind virus scanners is pretty well known.
