It gets harder and harder for me to understand why so many people stay on Microsoft operating systems.

That's cause you are an irrational zealot. You try to spread FUD about compatibility issues and Windows in general.

Take a Linux executable from 10 years ago from any distro any see how well it runs on a current release of Ubuntu. Now do the same with a Windows 95 executable. I bet only one of them will run correctly.

I'm going to be accused of being a shill or something, but it's amazing t me to see people on Slashdot spreading FUD, no matter the topic. For shame.

Comment Sigh. She is NOT an engineer. (Score 1, Insightful) 370

That term is reserved for those who have accountability for what they create and in most of the civilized world have gone through a certification process.

What she is, is a software developer. Part of that process is design and testing, but that alone does not make her an engineer.

Fuck all these people who think otherwise and dilute the word because they want to have a way to place themselves from their peers, because they can't do it with their work.

Barbara, I don't really care what you have to say on this matter. I have ties to the community, and disagree with you signature.

I understand it's rude, but I think it's an important point and relevant to the discussion. I don't mean to out anyone, but people put themselves out there when using their real name.

Thanks though.
