View Full Version : Analogy between software and Evolution

November 9th, 2006, 05:38 AM
I must admit... I philosophise a great deal about software and ethics and the origins of things etc.

Let me ask you this:

If Linux is organic, and evolves and develops as it has been and is doing, continuously changing and adapting, as nature itself does, then this must SURELY be attributed to it's free, organic and shared philosophy and pattern of development.

And so...:

If this is the case, the the family of Windows "products" (:D) would be directly analogous to an inter-bred family, distorted and malformed... deprived of genetic variation and exposure to the elements of evolution that cause it to adapt...

Hmmm... PLEASE tell me we want M$ out of the running?! - WHAT are they doing for our evolutionary process?

The first word rhymes with Duck, and the second with HALL!
