    For example the inventor of the computer "Zuse" Conrad Zuse only work for the nazis as a scientist because he do not want go in the war as a soldier.

    the US better won the war in 1945 because maybe A few years later they fight against computer driven cyborg robots. (this sentence is a joke)



    Sure but democracy is an European discovery the "F?r?er" discovery it 1500 years ago. the European also do have the oldest still working parliament 1300 years old.

    Any yes i give the us people credit for there FED-credit-Money system with that system they can build many slave nations. ;-) (this sentence is not a joke)

    and yes Democracy is great i love it
    Lets give credit where credit is due.... Democracy was first invented by the Helenistic Greeks thousands of years ago.

    Your delusional about slave nations... The Soviet Union had slave nations, of which North Germany was one of them... Personally I'm proud of capitalism, it is the only form of commerce that works. Socialism has been the direct cause of collapse of every major society going all the way back to the Egyptian Empire.. I mean really how many times does an ideology have to fail before people realize that it does not work.

    If nobody earns their own way, and everybody wants a free ride, then the system will fail.... TANSTAAFL

    I'll make a new made up law that states that as conversations on the internet progress the likelyhood of someone mentioning a made up law in an attempt to discredit someone goes up exponentially. I think I'll call it "Duby's Law"
    Neither did I say the probability had already reached 1... Only pointing out how many uncalled-for comments started popping up here. Given the reaction though, I guess I've had my last shot and will now do what I should apparently have done from the moment things started heading south: ignore that thread. Have fun.

    but all people around the world talk about the German dictators.

    one funny fact about that is: the EU/Germany try to get 100% green energy
    the last one who tried that was Hitler with the synthetic fuel made from wood.
    "The Role of Synthetic Fuel In World War II Germany"
    http://www.airpower.maxwell.af.mil/a...aug/becker.htm
    and the funny part is: some people believe modern Europe can not do the same because they think the Nazis back in 1933 do have magic superman power.

    so please stop talk about Dictatorship
    its not about Dictatorship even in a Democracy its all about : 'The humans wants to be deceived.'
    Sure I'll give the nazis credit for their technical prowess. Its a fact that the nazi germans pioneered many of the technologies that we take for granted today. But it doesnt mean that they werent evil. Also you can thank the US for your democracy. People around the world refuse to admit it, but we ARE good at nation building.

    and censorship is the only weapon against truth.
    Demagoguery seems to prove itself pretty effective against truth sometimes.

    Wow... It seems even eulogies on a Linux enthusiasts' forum can't escape Godwin's law...

    I find it hard to believe how a forum for technical people can be so full of simplistic world views. If more people were so susceptible to certain ideas expressed in statements like ``Earth would be better off without Individual X'', we'd all be living under some nice, friendly dictatorship.

    Ummm, sorry but Jef Raskin was the one pushing for the Mac development and got the go ahead after being shot down a couple of times. That started in 1979 and it wasn't until 81 that Jobs got involved with the project.

    Please refrain from such statements. Neither of us should rejoice over anybody's death.

    I have my grievances with Apple and Steve Jobs, but they did a lot of good stuff too. I am grateful for their contributions to CUPS and xserver. Moreover, they help to promote OpenGL and even initiated OpenCL.
