Key to success is to level the playfield for commercial activities (all contenders pay more or less identical tax, no monopolies) and spend money on activities that are not commercially viable yet valuable.
In short, you'll end up with effectively bureaucrats hopping from one program to another writing pretty money requests and/or companies squishing creativity.
For some constructive criticism, if anyone knows of a place succesful as mentioned above, please do share.
We need a banking system reform though.
Will we see the return of fascism, will someone come up with something entirely new, or will civilization simply collapse?
Yes (unrestricted corporatism). Yes (Snowden). Yes (Peak oil).
If not leave, perhaps a job with lower wage or out as a contractor.
Just have a little sympathy for them. They can't really know sometimes. Neither can you.
The word is fear.
Only a fucking lunatic would sympathize a kid bent on lethal destruction in the classroom.
It's just multi-role in the sense the role can change every month.
Which is preferable to a war every month.
You must be a Java programmer. Garbage collection is generally a very bad idea for a systems language, because of the periodic stalls whilst it does the cleanup.
Why not garbage collection methods in the kernel with different strategies?
So the easiest solution for companies is to force people to come into the office.
Force? Last time I checked we agreed I attend and do some in exchange for a bundle.
Also, I'm pretty confident it's better business for let's say, any restaurant, to provide services in a consistent location?

War has never been a place for ethics, ashing thousands of (civilian) people and claiming to save humanity is a fucking joke.
It didn't work either, because Japan had to be nuked twice afterwards.
“Dresden, the seventh largest city in Germany and not much smaller than Manchester, is also far the largest unbombed built-up the enemy has got. In the midst of winter with refugees pouring westwards and troops to be rested, roofs are at a premium. The intentions of the attack are to hit the enemy where he will feel it most, behind an already partially collapsed front, to prevent the use of the city in the way of further advance, and incidentally to show the Russians when they arrive what Bomber Command can do.” RAF January 1945
And communicating to members of such a regime that you're effing serious and now won't stop short of total surrender.
Get the fuck off your moral high horse. What was Churchill trying to communicate with Dresden?
The little peace in me
Time will tell. Many die hards such as myself will need a reason to upgrade. I think a bigger crises than XP awaits MS by 2020.
Many die hards need an incentive to stay on MS platforms.
Ditching studio with C# for Xcode & Objective-C is no longer desperate, HTML5 is the universal platform supported by all the major vendors.
