What? Do you even know who the Republican leadership is? The ones that just ensured that executive immigration amnesty is funded without a fight (because they were pushing for it all along)? No rocks to live under, here. Boehner's tall on talk, but he's in the Go Along, Get Along Gang.

I don't know; the market looks very different than it did back in the Halloween Email days. There are two things going on here: 1) Ballmer and Gates are out at MS, and 2) server OS market share is not as important as sales of cloud services. It isn't what you're running on your box that they're interested in, anymore, it's what you're connecting to for your business layer. If they can get *nix customers connecting to Azure on .NET, I think they'd call that a win.

That would be rather inconvenient for the residents themselves, would not it?

It doesn't have to. As long as residents in the neighborhood can still enter and leave, the inconvenience of not having a straight-shot going in the direction of the highway should be outweighed by the lack of rerouted traffic.

Why, yes, this is a great argument to justify selective enforcement of traffic laws too — tell the police to only ticket non-residents. Still feeling good?

Why would I feel bad? Selective police enforcement was your idea, not mine.
