Are we sure we WANT a "perfect" OS? Skynet anyone?

Try linux. You can configure yourself into an unbootable system just under 3 seconds!

Windows configurability (if there's such a word) is waaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy below Linux... Get your feet wet in Linux world, then you will see what you've been missing all these time

What Skynet? The fictional AI/OS/Cloud service from Terminator series? If so, we are still have a looooooooooooooooooooong way before we have 1/100 of what Skynet can do (that is to be able to self sustain and destroy the world in the process)...

+1 on the configurability front...
-1 on destroying the system under 3 secs (unless you did it deliberately, just like in Windows world)...

I hate having to resort to semantics, but the root definition of "perfect" doesn't mean without flaw, it means that it is completed as planned. However, we know about the plans of mice and men. One fear that I will never have is that a computer will ever become sentient...planned or otherwise. That some do think so, just illustrates how much that they under appreciate their own worth and uniqueness.
