comment Software design vs physical products design
You are comparing this to manufacturing while he is talking about the design process. I don't see how it answers anything.

As far as web dev goes, we use FreeBSD and Linux but one Windows box for testing in IE that doesn't touch our dev network

This has nothing to do with the question or the topic.

comment Silverlight support from Microsoft
@LinMa - The little bit we've done, we just use the video elements and canvas but you have to watch for the usual IE problems you'll have as we always do. I've never used Silverlight so I'm not the best source for alternatives to that.

comment Confusion over a hacker-howto article
There. It took me only one minute to write it :) . But seriously folks, it took me a long time to figure that out. Just because you SHOULD write problem solving code, it's hard to make yourself do it if you aren't interested, but that's true of most anything.

comment When did the standard for packaging Linux source code become .tar.gz?
@MasonWheeler and others. Just because tar has tape archiver in its name does not make it obsolete. EVERYONE I know uses tar in the *nix/BSD world and using .zip is relatively rare. In fact, when I see a zip file I almost always question whether it's a Windows only archive.

comment If you need more than 3 levels of indentation, you're screwed?
@SteveJessop - 8 spaces is the standard indent on Unix/Linux/BSD systems. Some (most?) such systems require 8 spaces for system writing.
