C# - As a language, ignoring MS's platform-lockage API games, it seems to tick off the fewest.

The biggest problem with C# (and the Microsoft ecosystem in general) is the lack of documentation. There are definitely some interesting ideas, like entity framework, but figuring out details when things aren't working is a real pain because of the poor documentation.

Also sounds like it may be much cheaper, which would be nice. I have repetitive strain injury from computer use and while it is manageable, I'd like a way to be able to not use the mouse when possible. An eye mouse would work well, but they are too much money. However this sounds like it might be in the range of something I could afford, and use as alternate input.

Here's the real problem:
Every time someone proposes a solution to climate change, people don't want it. It's not just politicians. That was the fact that started the thread, and it still stands.

Sure, if 'do something' means turning off your lights when you leave the room, people favor it. When it comes to doubling the price of gas, people don't.

I'm using fairly standard criteria - said criteria being based your ability to provide verifiable proof of your assertions. What did you think? That mere rhetoric would convince us?

I don't think there's anything that will convince you. If someone provided proof, you would find a way to explain it away.

"a failed justice system"

Show me the failure here... The grand jury found no probably cause to proceed. That's the way the system works, all available evidence is reviewed and a decision is made. Remember that whole 'innocent until proven guilty" bit? Also, show me where burning down your neighbors home/car/business makes any point other than that you are a lawless punk. Hey, next time I get really mad about something, why don't I go burn your neighborhood down, that should really get you on my side...

Now why they changed I dunno, but that can change things. Also there was supposedly physical evidence that contradicted witness statements.

However if you are interested, it sounds like the unusual step of opening up the grand jury records will be taken in this case. So, keep up with it and read the transcript when it is available, and then see what you conclude.
