How long ago did Intel invent the 80386 processor with /hardware/ capability to keep bad tasks from hampering the operating systems?
Was it 10 years? 15 years?
How long did KleinWeich (aka Micro$oft) have the chance to make good use of that?
Any maker of kitchen knives is being held responsible for any damage resulting from the use of their product (if not today, then surely tomorrow), but software license agreements tell a different story
So how is it possible for some WeichWare (aka software) like Netscape to scramble hard disks and kill the whole system, and keep it from rebooting?
