I couldn't find the proper words, sorry. I just meant that I've
sometimes read people say, "My compiler doesn't work or there's an OS
bug", and others actually recommend (!) they switch entirely, just for
one tiny flaw. That's not reasonable nor realistic, and even worse,
software limitations should never require changes in hardware, IMO.

My OS takes too much RAM -- buy more RAM.
My apps are too slow -- buy a faster cpu.
xyz Windows compiler doesn't work -- switch to Linux.

You know, the lame solutions that don't solve anything and are almost
more trouble than they solve.

You're right, but he apparently "only" stepped down a week ago. So
it's not that old news.   :-P
