Why is it not available in more public places?
The yearly frost has been killing vermin for ages in North America and Europe. As the frost line moves upwards, as USDA "zones" creep northwards, so do these creatures.
Often these creatures are "invasive" the native plants have no defense against these bugs. For example stink bugs have existed 200 miles south of Mason-Dixon line for centuries without serious issues. When the climate became pleasant enough to inhabit pockets north of PA-MD border, they found many delicious plants and nesting places to winter over, and they are becoming serious pests.
Such changes have taken place repeatedly in the past. We know that. If it happens slow enough, the plants will develop resistance. What is alarming is the rapidity of the change. The life cycle of a tree is in decades. Bugs have life cycles measured in days. Bugs would have several hundred generations to go against an existing tree which has no way of defending itself. It takes centuries or even a millennia for a forest to assimilate, integrate and thrive as new bug species infest them.
Creating doubt is easy. Asking questions is easy. Finding answers is difficult. Accepting uncomfortable answers, is even more difficult.
But it is a problem because... google.
The motto, the dream, the hope, the aspiration of every bank is to become so big no one else can compete, and to divert all the profits as executive salaries, boni and other incentives.
They could not prove Nixon faking moon landings. So they nailed him for cover up of office break in.
Then the fiasco of Win8, skipped 9, Win10. Finally everyone will be brought to Win10 kicking and screaming. And they all will file bug reports with a vengeance. MS developers will bellyache having to fix bugs in win10, while all the really cool assignment goes Win12 teams. But eventually Win10 will get to be actually much better than Win7. Just in time to declare it dead and annoint Win12 as the new king of the hill.
And the cycle will repeat.
Its turtles all the way down. And bugs all the way up.
The only good thing is, good or bad, you know what GUI is available in ALL windows machines and you can develop applications. Linux suffers in that respect. Qt? or Tkl or gnome or what? . Quite sad, given X11 actually was way ahead of windows in providing a base set of ui features guaranteed on all unix systems.
If you didn't have to work so hard, you'd have more time to be depressed.
