Richard Stallman The hardest computing challenges we face are man-made: language, roads and spam. Take, for instance, robot-driven cars. We could do this without a vision system, and modify every road on the planet by adding driving rails or other guides for robot-driven cars, but it is much cheaper and safer to build software for cars to travel on roads as they exist today, chaotic mess that they are. At the annual American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) conference in February 2007, the “consensus” among the scientists was that we will have driverless cars by 2030.

In Windows, users have historically had full Administrator access to the machine, including the ability to overwrite system files. When the computer is attacked by a virus, the virus can gain the same capabilities as the user and can therefore hide itself inside system files, which make it very difficult to remove. On Linux, I can write only to my own files and have read-only access to all others. Linux's multiuser nature, and therefore its focus on minimal permissions, minimizes any damage. One study found that there are about 60,000 known viruses for Windows, and only about 40 for Linux.
