++ What Linux Rants said, I disagree wholeheartedly with those who claim the more popular linux becomes then the more malware we will see, Linux IS especially popular on those machines that hold up large sections of the Internet, ask Google,Yahoo,Amazon,Facebook,The Stock exchange, to name but a few. Not to mention the lions share of mobile devices (tens of millions). Of course anything on a network can be exploited, but Linux will never be raped and pillaged the way Windows is. We can see the code we run, others are less fortunate.

How do you feel about accidents that occur when self-driving vehicles are being tested?
Self-driving vehicles should be banned -- one death is one too many.
Autonomous vehicles could save thousands of lives -- the tests should continue.
Companies with bad safety records should have to stop testing.
Accidents happen -- we should investigate and learn from them.
The tests are pointless -- most people will never trust software and sensors.
Most injuries and fatalities in self-driving auto tests are due to human error.
