The other side of the coin

We all have seen the crashed Windows pictures of monitors on airports that Linux advocates always mention on their blogs.

Actually, Apollo 11 was plagued by software crashes during the final lunar descent.

NASA seem to use 15 year old technology in many things – because it has been well tested. Same mentality as Bankers.

Well, yeah, but this is not as common as a consumer OS crashing or freezing.

“I thought Linux systems never crash. Hmmm..”

Yes, and OSX is perfectly safe, and Vista doesn’t need virus protection, and face recognition never fails, and politicians never lie, and we live forever :) The last one is true :)
