At the NSA they KNOW a bigger haystack is a better haystack, so why not extend that idea to a programming language.

By understanding all the languages you get the strengths of all the languages and none of the weaknesses, programmers can just ignore the weaknesses then they arent there,

Why should programmers have to put up with those pesky syntax errors when you can just make the language accept any (stupid) command.

Forward to the future !

The value of open source is that end users can choose to take repsonsibility of the software for themselves, or get someone else to do it for them.

A lot of moneypeople expected volunteers to do all the work and were not willing to accept any responsibility themselves. You would think they would learn from their mistake wouldnt you.

the government that you're so disappointed with campaigned on and was democratically elected on exactly this platform. They left not one shred of doubt about what they would do with the carbon tax when elected.

What they said they would do bears little resemblence to what they have tried to do.

Elections are fought on many topics, its naive to think the winning party has popular support for every policy they took to the election.

The Government did not win a majority in the senate, the people chose not to give them a mandate.

The people of Australia have no interest in adopting your energy poverty agenda

A recent essentila poll showed that 38% of people think Australia (and others) shoudl oppose a price on carbon, 39 opposed the idea, others dont know.

Never mind, revenge is a sweet dish in politics, one term Tony is going to lead his party to a historic defeat that his party might never recover from.

Yep, big linnup of corporate freeloaders trying to get in early in the exploitation of others.

We need to abandon freedom 0 (The freedom to run the program, for any purpose),
The Free software movement should not demand that software be allowed to be used to make society less free. We cant just concern ourselves with software, we are not an island,
We need a non-commercial licence
