Man on the moon?

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on August 27, 2006 12:23 AM
Ever since Newton invented Gravity, it became impossible to put a man on the moon. Even if we did get there, how would we bring back that cheese without it melting during reentry? And that is nothing compared to the complexity of finding a good tortilla chip which can withstand the pressures of being shot into space.

Sure there is going to be difficulty here, but that doesn't mean that your assumptions of impossibility are true, or that these previous one-year projects are indicitive of success (or not) of these new projects. APIs are human-made and can be modified, and now that both KDE and GNOME finally understand the importance of this idea (they didn't before), I would expect success.

Success, if for no other reason that I am not involved and I prefer to be optimistic, especially when I have no real idea of the challenges.
