Progress isn't made by early risers. It's made by lazy men trying to find easier ways to do something.
I always give the hardest task to the laziest worker, because he will surely find the easiest way to do it.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Very smart programmers often work hard to create, for end-users, an illusion of simplicity that allows end-users to be lazy.
«... thank the gods that they have made you superior to those events which they have not placed within your own control, rendered you accountable for that only which is within you own control For what, then, have they made you responsible? For that which is alone in your own power—a right use of things as they appear.» Discourses of Epictetus Book I:12
In a virtual world everything should work.
It could run a Shadow copy, right?
Then it could replace the one on disk.
Then it could load the new one and point to the new memory where the new one runs.
Software is all virtual -- no physical limitations -- so it _should_ work.
Let's think outside the box.
I know there are other issues. Just that software doesn't feel real anyways.
Then these limitations often feel false.
Why would anyone go to those lengths to service an uninstall of their software. Besides if you (well me anyway) tried to code something like that the software would probably end up crawling up its own arse.
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity
