The problem lies squarely with C.

If they'd used C++ instead of C, heartbleed would never have happened - std::containers don't need to store their size as a separate variable.

Luckily for us, the people responsible for maintaining the Linux Kernel understand the difference between C and C++ and their software isn't full of manual memory management and arguments over which version of malloc()/free() to use. Oh, wait...

Imagine that Cray computer decides to make a personal computer. It has
a 150 MHz processor, 200 megabytes of RAM, 1500 megabytes of disk
storage, a screen resolution of 4096 x 4096 pixels, relies entirely on
voice recognition for input, fits in your shirt pocket and costs $300.
What's the first question that the computer community asks?

"Is it PC compatible?"
