The only issue with that is, eventually YOU would be at the top 1... it may take a while, but eventually it would happen.

I propose we reform the income tax system in the United States.

Instead of many tax brackets, we just have two. One for the top 1 and one for everyone else. And I really do mean 1, not 1%.

Those in the top bracket, which means Bill Gates, are taxed at 100% of their net worth, with a mandatory death penalty for either paying or not paying.
Everyone else gets a small flat tax.

Well, according to a bit of crude statistical analysis, there are about 39 million people who make more money than I do, and I only plan on living another six years (but I may extend that to another 30-50 years depending on how I feel about it). So I don't think I really have anything to worry about it.

Notwithstanding that, however, I'm perfectly ok with sunsetting the top bracket after Gates has paid both his taxes and his penalty.

What would you spend Bill Gate's money on?

I was typing something into a field in a web application, and made a typo.

I reached for the backspace key ... but accidentally hit F11 instead.

The computer promptly blue screened.

Bill Gates must die.

Everything in Microsoft's "cloud" ... Skype, Outlook, XBox Live, OneDrive ... all b0rked today. So much for the "reliable and stable industry leader."

I did not successfully open a single document in Office 365 during the entire outage period.

That sounds awfully "legal". Did you even try?

Of course not. I don't use Office 365. As far as I know it was completely titsup the whole day.

"Sounds awfully legal." I'm totally going to remember that phrase for future use. ;)

*grml*

I just re-installed my Windoze desktop after getting hit with malware from a bad download. First time in the 2+ years I've been running 'doze as my primary desktop OS.

Happens to the best of us once in a while, I guess.

This one was *bad* ... it messed with the hosts file, proxy settings, installed services, autostart apps, browser extensions, desktop icons, and the good old "you can't run this antivirus program because the requested resource is already in use" driver.

I probably could have gotten through it eventually but after a couple of hours I decided to cut my losses and reinstall.

Microsoft Windows ... still a complete piece of garbage after 32 years. But it still beats being in Apple's world. [ http://tinyurl.com/mcuatqe ]

I live in both an Apple and Windows world - currently running Windows 10 on 6 different machines (2 desktops, 3 laptops and a Surface). I've got three Apple machines (2 desktops and a laptop).

While Windows 10 is defintely better than previous versions, it's still a suckfest.

My Mac's work. Flawlessly. I can't remember the last time I had a problemn that wasn't related to something stupid I was doing, or trying to get some oddball open source thing running.

I sticks to my philosphy - easy when I want it to be, but I can get under the hood more than enough when I need to.

Using a Mac still feels like I'm stuck in a foreign country where computers just don't work quite right. It may have a unix kernel but it tries as hard as it can not to look, feel, or act like Unix.

In the 21st century, the only true unix is Linux. Period. End of discussion.

Thankfully none of this really matters all that much anymore, since almost everything runs on the other side of a network connection now.

One of the things I enjoy most about my macs is, that the ui feels a lot like my old Amiga Workbench.

And the fact that it behaves as much as a linux box when you install iterm.

Most of the time, it stays out of the way. For work and business related stuff, I can live with windows. But I would rather not use it at home, for anything.

There's also the *BSD family.
