Thank you for the clarification and correction! Yes, I did understand it as "after using."

It's fun to go back and re-read computery pontifications after like 15 years ... amazing how much is still the same, but also how much is so different.
Linux as a pc os is dead to me after fighting it for 20+ years with the same problems lingering the whole time.
Windows still kicks ass though Microsoft has sort of become a "who cares" much like the PC has in the home.
Java ... still sucks for writing servers but mobile apps have no doubt moved to it thanks to Android.
The kernel is still linux-based aka written in c/c++
Java garbage collection still can kick your ass if you are writing a performance-driven server .. for most other non-critical servers, all these languages have come a looooong way and they are all starting to look the same ... and this is not really a good thing. Too much magic has made things easy to write but sometimes impossible to understand and debug...
Never-the-less, this thread was fun read (at least for me)
