Talk about Linux being rock solid -- My Linux (CentOS 6) web server hasn't been rebooted for 331 days! Can you imagine not rebooting for an entire year? There's a reason Linux dominates the web server market.
On this feast of one of the great doctors of the Church
, I dare to offer my speculation [*
] that it might be because crucial code in Linux, notably storage allocation
, plus buffer management
, was designed, written, and tested by a responsible adult
, with his successors loyally following his lead in programming maturity
I confess that I have no sources to confirm my speculation; it's possible that many programmers faced a firing squad before Linux achieved the necessary level of quality & reliability
I remember some versions of Windows that needed to be rebooted several times a day.
yes, a testament to the immature hacking
[Δ] and related slipshod programming
for which Bill Gates--and his Microsoft--seems to have become the standard-bearer. And yes: Any perceived insult
is fully intended.
: From extensive experience, which was unpleasant as often as not, and not really amenable to being boiled down to comparisons of programming languages.
