Illegal filesharing could conceivably nuke the entertainment industry - not completely, but enough to get their attention. They should consider an alternative to the adversarial approach - deploy their own fileshares and make it economically and technically desirable to use those sources. It would be like nuclear power for the entertainment industry. But no - they just seem interested in garbage like the TPP, torrent cache posioning, idiotic lawsuits, domain takedowns and other WMD technologies. Entertainment is becoming the North Korea of industries.
With that said, I do routinely install PuTTY - I've gotten tired of the old arguments:

(ME): "Can't you just tell me what ports to use?"
(COWORKER): "The only way I know how is in PuTTY."
Anybody but me ever felt the urge to punch the monkey?
If Tsarnaev were to choose to commit suicide during a life sentence, I suspect he could find a way. Does that assuage your distaste for my motives?
The dead do not exist for all their lives in a six foot by ten foot box. They do not weep for lost freedom, nor yearn for sunshine and gentle wind. They do not slip gradually to the madness of long isolation. Tsarnaev should be made to know these things.
He loves me. He really, really loves me. *sniff*
And for the record, we who have been in the industry long enough to remember a time without all these resources - we who are decidedly not "Digital Natives" - we're the ones who created FaceBox, YouScreen and WhoBook et. al. And we still have a much older word for "Digital Natives" - we still call 'em "n00bz".
See? The science of Astrology explains it all!
Are there any Windows Administrators out there with I.Q.'s > 90 that knowingly and intentionally leave ports 137, 138, 139 and/or 445 open to the Intartubes?
Sorta like global warming is supposed to be nowadays. I'm pretty sure we've contributed, but I'm not so sure we caused it . . . what I do know is that we should consider adapting - quickly.
