    Because Windows is a security risk. And a pain to maintain. It is much more difficult to automate useful tasks, multiple-concurrent-user support is shoddy at best (which means if a user wants me to configure something, half the time I have to log them out to do it), and the "superuser" doesn't have superuser privileges all the time.

    But this isn't really a Winbashing thread. So, although I could rant for hours, I'm going to go back to writing stupid little VB apps to make my users' lives easier rather than just installing Mandrake on all their machines.

[Corion]: Also, London is always a nice visit, as I got to meet a friend there, and spent some time offline, working on "minor" features of the shadertoy thing ;)
[marto]: maybe next year when the kids are a little older I'll have time to attend perl events in Europe
[Corion]: marto: Yeah - there isn't a Perl Day-Care at Perl events - we thought about it for YAPC::Europe 2012 but it's a gigantic effort to organize that
[marto]: Corion yeah, it'd be too costly for me to bring them both :P
