Windows Is Not A Virus

This morning while I was surfing the web I found this post that I want to share with you.

No, Windows is not a virus. Here’s what viruses do:

  • They replicate quickly - okay, Windows does that.
  • Viruses use up valuable system resources, slowing down the system as they do so - okay, Windows does that.
  • Viruses will, from time to time, trash your hard disk - okay, Windows does that too.
  • Viruses are usually carried, unknown to the user, along with valuable programs and systems. Sigh… Windows does that, too.
  • Viruses will occasionally make the user suspect their system is too slow (see 2) and the user will buy new hardware. Yup, that’s with Windows, too.

Until now it seems Windows is a virus but there are fundamental differences: Viruses are well supported by their authors, are running on most systems, their program code is fast, compact and efficient and they tend to become more sophisticated as they mature.

So Windows is not a virus.

It’s a bug.

Is Google Good Or Evil?

Today the San Francisco Chronicle talks about Google and how all the information that Google with it free services are collecting about everyone and everything.

From its start, Google has set for itself the mission of organizing all the world’s information. Not some. All. In its first 10 years, it has shown no hesitation in tackling the largest scale computing challenges it can find. This company does not scare.

googserv They are scanning every book, they have the number one destination of videos, they have free programs like word and excel to create online documents and you can store in their servers. They manage our email, they handle our medical records, photos, maps, calendar, etc. With all these services they can know what, where, who, etc about everyone.

Bill Gates said a long time ago that the powerful is not the one with bigger weapons is the one with more information and that is what Google is doing right now.

Which leads to the question, in light of Google’s audacious information collecting, why were we ever scared of the Microsoft Evil Empire? At the apogee of Microsoft’s power, its ability to know what its customers were doing was nil. Our information was privately stored on our PCs. But if you discard Word and Excel for Google’s Docs and Spreadsheets, your files sit on Google’s computers. And if you avail yourself of Google’s array of other free services, so do your personal calendar, your e-mail, your online shopping history, personal photos, health records and stock portfolio.

So is this concentration of this kind of information is for good or not? Just the time will tell us but if we look back in history to much power corrupt anyone.
