That is so 1990. The modern way to wipe out humanity is debt. Why kill everyone, when you can make them all pay tribute instead? And if someone protests, you tell your media to blame the "crysis". And then keep on going until there are only some ritches, the army, and the poor. And then you have won.

Your post works both ways.

"I'm currently working on a large Java based application. It's just like every rich client I've ever done, except it enforces me to write a lot of redundant type information, and I have to compile every time I change something. Waiting for the VM to start is a pain in the ass. It's slower. I have to make it work in multiple operative systems. It's enterprisey and web 2.0ish and "secure", but I have to use this huge IDE I'm not familiar with and navigate through miriads of submenus to make the most simple tasks. I'm missing all the flexibility I'm used to in a console-friendly environment. As a developer, It just seems like a huge step backwards."
