    It's the Government you have to be more concerned about... Corporations usually have the money and expertise (or can get it).

    Perhaps you should have just asked "possible to get rid of the 'lands'?"... Seriously, why?

    Oh yes, we want to be doing that, it was such a good idea 20 years ago.

    Yay, Australia isn't on the list. :-)

    Don't forget it could have nothing to do with the CPU itself -- more the controlling chipset or the bus.

    There's nothing wrong with the .NET framework, "bagging" it out without reason is stupid. Seriously, C# fixes a lot of problems that plague C++ (it also introduces some :-)).

    Conversely, there is a problem that CS/SE students have -- and that's telling poor employers apart from the good ones.
