    We certainly can agree to that...
    :thumbsup:

    Easy enough for me, because I would do away with all forms of government-supplied public assistance in a heartbeat.


    If we are giving anyone money in any amount which was first taken by government from someone else, someone who produced it, then we are giving them too damn much.

    But then... I'm repeating myself, aren't I?

    Now I know why it took 30 years to create a stable operating system.

    There are individuals who create their own operating system...

    I agree, but it'd be too burdensome to prove in court. It's easier just to lock 'em up for possession of smoke. The results would be the same. :smoking:

    A single person, or in conjunction with others. (i.e.modifying one of the numerous flavors of linux)

    Maybe I'm wrong, but I think a feature rich operating system would take a long time for one person to start from scratch and finish without help.

    Very good sir, you are correct.
    And yes, I was thinking primarily of Linux..
    (and I of course have no idea whether Torvalds has ever in his life tried or used cannabis)

    Sure it takes a long time, but some do so.
    Not a "feature-rich" OS with the full set of functionality we expect from a personal computer OS such as Linux or Windows, but regardless...

    I am not a software engineer, and I don't have the capability to create an OS myself.

    My point in that post stands however..


    Some folks make things happen.
    Some folks watch things happen.
    Some folks stand around and wonder WHAT happened.
