Programming is like building a system from scratch. You figure out what the system needs and design/build the components that make up the system. Then you tweak & retweak everything for optimal performance, efficiency, stability, reliability, security, and implement protective measures against intentional/unintentional misuse as well as expanding the system with new features as needed to further improve it's usefulness.

Just noticed that Google dropped my Drive capacity WAY back down to 15GB. Wow. Did this happen to anyone else? Sounds like it's time to start looking for other cloud storage options if they are gonna cut me off like that. What happened to my extra files? How did they decide which files to cut to make it down to 15GB?

I think OSI deserves all the support they can get. Even if many folks would question Microsoft's motives. Which brings me to another thought. I wonder what Stallman would say if MS offered to contribute to the Electronic Frontier Foundation?

Is Microsoft's "embrace" an attempt to smother Linux out of existence or do they truly wish to coexist for the greater good of software development? Is Shuttleworth biased by his relationship with Microsoft or better informed on their true intentions? Is Stallman seeing a conspiracy where there is none or is he on to something he can't yet prove?
