The mysql module should have been shot before it was ever included. A database interface layer that doesn't support bound parameters is criminally irresponsible, and people who write such things should be held criminally responsible.
Pace of innovation? I can't understand you people who like to work 60 hour weeks just so the hamster wheel can spin faster. Get out more.

to them. If they can detect the sort of brain activity that correlates with intelligence, certainly this can be expanded to other brain activity. Throw a Union Jack on their screens and see how they respond. Boom, state loyalty tester. Throw two naked guys on their screen, boom, sexual orientation test.

Oracle v. Google was about a nine-line range checking routine, written by the same guy at different jobs. The jury found it copyrightable, I seem to remember. (WAT)
Fair Use still exists, but so too does everything short of barratry.
*shrug* Samsung Electronics has some tempting little eight-ARMed chips that would feel great on a Mini-ITX motherboard. Still not FOSS, but if that's really important to you, there's lowRISC (Berkeley RISC-V including development toolchain and Linux image) and just now Parallax's Propeller for your I/O needs...
