[linux-elitists] Should software apologize?
Wed May 1 14:08:44 PDT 2002
I did a quick "apt-get install konqueror" (after seeing this...
http://sec.greymagic.com/adv/gm001-ns/ with no more detail) and
got the message:
Sorry, konqueror is already the newest version.
Sorry? What is apt-get doing apologizing?
$ ls /usr/bin | xargs strings | grep Sorry | wc -l
223 apologies? A few of them are for exceeding compiled-in limits
or some such, which is something to apologize for, but why should
software apologize to you for _your_ mistake?
