(And before you say it, Intel is only the choice of idiots when it comes to graphics for gamers. Maybe someday they'll get their header out of their asterisk, but it hasn't happened yet.)
Hey, I bet if you gave our ancestors the new OS interface they'd totally freak!
In my opinion, if something works, why replace it with something that doesn't.
If you mean the rest of the business world, they didn't. Drove microsoft crazy trying to get them to move from Win 7 & Win XP to Win 8. For the most part, it failed.
You know, we really need a sarcasm font or some other means to obviously indicate sarcasm. I'd love to say we can usually get it from the basic context of the text, but damn, have you talked to some of these people out there? It's amazing how many of them cling to bizarre concepts that they try to foist on people as being real that nobody else would even consider. For one well known example, though not relevant to UIs or MS, the world is only 6000 years old. Screw that, I've held man made objects a lot older than that!
On the other hand, I prefer to go with the idea that it was just so much better than the second choice on their list, "The Tome of Ignorance and Incomprehensibility" that numerous bots, err, people on the internet suggested.
Any high schooler should have enough education that they won't fall for the Dihydrogen Monoxide gag either.
Sadly, that is not the case in this country.
And you wonder why the other countries keep laughing at us behind our borders.
Genetic engineering does however allow for the genes to come from extremely dissimilar sources though the designs prefer to avoid such extreme options when they can. As to viruses, all bets are off since we already know that viruses shuffle genes from all kinds of species whenever they damn well want to because they are viruses and don't give a damn. It's amazing how much horizontal gene transfer they are finding in nature.
By the way, in case you weren't aware, they've found a lot of dna in humans that they believe was put there by viruses.
That's why they can carbon 14 date dead things, they stop taking in carbon 14 so the levels drop at a consistent known rate.
Of course the sun is radioactive as well, take a background reading during the day and compare it to the night. Still you have radiation at night because the entire universe is one giant radiation bath.
Still, if you mention any level of radiation, even something smaller than what you yourself give off, lots of people go into an ignorant panic.
It's the same with many things.
