I'll probably get interested in using Wine again when the people who maintain the slackbuild for it are interested in supporting it for 64-bit Linux.
That and the fact that ever even thinking of having to use something like Wine to run Minecraft on Linux fails on so many different levels that I have no words for it.
At least the guy is being honest about where he's at.... he doesn't want to deal with the hassles of being responsible for a product that is this big. Even if that makes him a lazy ass, who the fuck cares? He's at least had the balls to say he's retiring with what he's made so far instead of trying to coast under the illusion of still being in charge of development, while not actually delivering any real product... and given his position, you know that he probably wouldn't even get fired for it.... or at least not for quite a long time, and it would only drag the company down and hurt everybody.
After you have a certain amount of money, having even more just means more responsibility, and it's entirely okay for somebody to actively make a choice to not want to be a part of that.
By "everyone", please admit to what you are really trying to say.... everyone who matters. Or more correctly, everyone that *YOU* think matters.
The problem, as always... is distracted driving, not mere use of an electronic device while driving, because as you have noted, not all electronic devices require any kind of concentration to use, or would actually be a distraction. Arguably, simply talking to another person in the vehicle can present a greater distraction than using steering-wheel mounted controls for the car's audio system.
And vehicles with stereo controls mounted on the wheel are explicitly designed to minimize the distraction from driving while using. If such things are illegal to operate while driving then it would stand to reason that it would also be illegal to buy such a car in that jurisdiction... again, this is because of what positioning of the controls are *explicitly* designed to achieve.
Further, some electronic devices are necessary to use for normal and safe operation of the vehicle itself, such as cruise control. or even signalling. My point being that "electronic device" is overly vague, and can be enforced arbitrarily.
