Division Two Magazine and “12 Things a Klingon Programmer Would Say”
I’ve set up a mirror of the old Division Two Magazine site that went offline and was replaced by a parked domain. Lots of gems there:
Today I’m going to tackle one of the hottest topics in the industry, comparing Microsoft’s latest offerings to the offerings being released by the major Linux players for both network servers and desktop solutions. I am going to steer clear of “total cost of ownership” arguments, because Microsoft has already funded extensive research that has proven Windows is cheaper to own and operate than Linux. I’m going to be looking at the issue from a pure usability perspective. Which platform saves me the most time? Which platform has the features I need? Which platform has the best third party applications and utilities?
I also added “Top 12 things likely to be overheard if you had a Klingon Programmer” (which was also not originated by me):
12) “Specifications are for the weak and timid!”
11) “This machine is a piece of GAGH! I need dual Pentium processors if I am to do battle with this code!”
10) “You cannot really appreciate Dilbert unless you’ve read it in the original Klingon.”
