There's more than enough evidence that shows people with guns are the ones inclined to take them everywhere just to intimidate everyone within sight. In fact, nobody's ever seen somebody without a gun go around with a gun to intimidate people! You might want to see a psychiatrist for that denial and projection problem you have.

Really? You're claiming that PowerShell, running in a damn cmd.exe piss-poor excuse for a terminal, with Windows's crappy excuse for a console, "obliterates" what I can do with bash, either through Konsole or any of a dozen other terminal choices with tabbed interfaces, or on 12 non-X VTs that can be switched between, either of which takes a whole keystroke to swap between?

The difference makes itself up quite quickly, hence, if you can't afford the up-front cost, you probably can't afford a new car in the first place, and a lot of people in that situation are too uneducated financially to even begin to understand the benefits of paying more up front instead of getting a lower "monthly payment" that'll cost you a lot more over time, and will jump on that $350 a month because they can "afford" it like they can afford spending $20 on fast food every single day instead of buying a microwave and some groceries and be saving money within a week.

I think it will be WONDERFUL for everybody. The authors that are dumping trash because self-publishing lets them will stop getting paid for trash. Maybe it will convince them to stop writing (for a very loose definition of "writing") entirely, and I'll actually be able to buy books without spending hours filtering through the moron word spewers.
