comment (jQuery) What is wrong with methods such as .append?
@MainMa No, you're fine. I just got lost in the details.

comment (jQuery) What is wrong with methods such as .append?
@cbojar Ok. I got lost between his first sentence and the topic because I started thinking he was saying jQuery inserts HTML without using the DOM.

comment (jQuery) What is wrong with methods such as .append?
@cbojar Which led to my question, how does one inject HTML into a web page without using the DOM?

I'm questioning your statement. You are saying jQuery doesn't use the DOM when injecting HTML into a web page but that's impossible.

comment (jQuery) What is wrong with methods such as .append?
@MainMa You said "you can avoid injecting HTML through jQuery" and I asked how does jQuery avoid the DOM when inserting HTML into the DOM. I'm not asking about speed.

comment Why don't developers make installation wizards on linux?
@iveqy I just realized we've gotten off topic. This has nothing to do with what I originally said and that you still don't see such wizards is further evidence of what I said.

@iveqy Any text config file will give you far more abilities than any installation "wizard" ever will. If such wizards could do better, they would exist, but they don't.
