For the past few weeks I've been trying to figure out why my newborn son reminds me so much about the Windows operating system. While I was changing a diaper this morning it finally hit me:
The more you put into it, the more it craps out on you.
Update: heh.. not more than 15 minutes after posting this entry, my Windows XP laptop died while running some test cases. It was running WebSphere, DB2 and Rational Application Developer and has 1.5 gb of memory. I'm running the same load on Ubuntu without even so much as a hiccup.
