comment Languages supporting unicode logic operators
My guess is that it's the simple combination of "hard to type" and "even if your language would support it, you'd still need to know the other variants because of the languages that don't".

comment Why is Internet Explorer the only browser to be referred to by version when talking about compatibility?
It's not just the manual upgrades that slow IE upgrades: it's also that in many companies the policy (both organizational and technical, i.e. Domain Group Policy) is explicitly to stay with an old version, due to compatibility concerns with some (usually in-house) web applications that are equally old and don't work with newer IEs.

comment When should I increment version number?
For constantly-deployed web applications (the usual single-source-single-installation kind), I'd personally just use the build number to identify each version. For those, semantic versioning is probably overkill.

comment Deferred Open Source licensing
I think you'd require a pretty normal contract for that doesn't actually have all that much to do with licensing law. "<company> guarantees that <product X> will be released under <open source license> before <due date> or they will pay <big fine>." (Oh and IANAL ...)

comment Empty interface to combine multiple interfaces
@MichaelShaw: yeah, but you're not abstracting away a loop counter in an object, do you? I'm sorry but this discussion is much too abstract for me without a concrete example of where it's a good idea to insist on the same object.
