Sócrates invented the blind heel pass
Why should I care what code OTHERS decide to present to the world?
I dunno, because it's executing on your computer?
Except that all of those thing either don't apply to web apps at all, or apply to all web apps. There's nothing to install, upgrade, or fix locally, and you're dependent on some service provider regardless of the status of the code.
That is exactly his point -- and the fact that these limitations can be worked around.
Who tought of that name anyway? Yeah, we have a planet, let's call it "dust", or "dirt". Yuck. We can call it Vulcan (because it has a lot of vulcans, you know, and it had even more so times before) or "The Blue Jewel", or "Water drop", but no, we called it "Dirt".
You mean, besides from the fact that if you install it, your system will crawl to a halt?
No, au contraire. The following policy _will_ guarantee that users will act like adult human beings:
We will take a peep at your files randomly and fire you without severance the first time we find something we don't like. Period.
mount -o noexec
use one of these when nobody else is watching. Problem solved.
In the old days, when we liked to have an onion in our belts, because it was fashionable than, the Z-80 processor that drove our computer was the same that drove the video, i.e., took the bytes from the video memory and generated the corresponding image in the CRT. So, if you crashed the processor very badly, and it stopped responding to video interrupts, then your image generator could go "out". If it was connected to an RF generator (which was also fashionable at the day), it could turn that off also, and then, sshskhskhkshshskhsk no RF on channel 3/4, snow snow snow noise noise noise.
Where I live there are no software patents.
Sane, isn't it?
