Humor Every now and then, you come across things that make the internet worthwhile. So yeah, there's this whole genitalia length comparing competition going on between Adobe and Apple, where both companies are actually arguing, with straight faces, which of the two is more open (which to me comes across as Mario and Zelda arguing over who's less of a sell-out). Luckily, though, there's the internet to make us laugh.

Hell, Windows 3.x had memory protection and in Windows95 all apps used preemptive multitasking without requiring to be specifically designed for that.

I just remember that whenever one or another app crashed and went into an eternal loop it'd make the WHOLE system unresponsive and you couldn't do anything without resetting the system. As such I'd say their pre-emptive model didn't really work too well.
