I would agree and if people think they'll complete a Learn PHP book and then get loads of job offers that's simply not going to happen. You'll still have to put work in to build something that proves you know what you're doing. I don't have a degree but that certainly hasn't stopped me and the bulk of the jobs I've applied for over the last 7 years or so claimed to require a degree. But I've also got over about 12 years of experience and really that's what companies want. They want to know you can do what you claim (and ideally you're not an asshole). A degree is certainly a short cut in the eyes of many to proving you know what you're doing. It is still worth considering getting one but I think only if you're still going to something extra into like have at least one or two side projects that show you're not just going through the academic steps or better yet do some side job freelancing. I think even if you're making shitty little static html sites for people if you're proving you can manage customer relations that will matter a whole lot more than you think. Anti-social competent programmers are a dime a dozen.

Why does the US expect citizens abroad to pay tax after a certain certain threshold or how it some how believes if you travel to the US during a vacation since you are paid for that vacation then you're earning money in the US. For you see being American is so great that you must forever file your taxes and pay your way for being on America's planet.

Since corporations are people then the same should apply.

Comparison: Linux Text Editors 402

jrepin writes: Mayank Sharma of Linux Voices tests and compares five text editors for Linux, none of which are named Emacs or Vim. The contenders are Gedit, Kate, Sublime Text, UltraEdit, and jEdit. Why use a fancy text editor? Sharma says, "They can highlight syntax and auto-indent code just as effortlessly as they can spellcheck documents. You can use them to record macros and manage code snippets just as easily as you can copy/paste plain text. Some simple text editors even exceed their design goals thanks to plugins that infuse them with capabilities to rival text-centric apps from other genres. They can take on the duties of a source code editor and even an Integrated Development Environment."

The Wii U had more systems sold the last time Microsoft gave numbers for the Xbox. In their last report Microsoft refused to clearly state how many xboxes sold were xbones and which were 360s so it's doing badly and probably still in third place. Hell they were / are taking a breaking from manufacturing in order to sell through what's on the shelves. Let's not try and pretend Nintendo is in some distant 3rd place position given they're probably in a somewhat distant 2nd place position.
