Check through the various business related sources (books, magazines) that convinced a generation of management that it was cheaper to buy then to build and then, when that didn't work out so well, how they fall-back plan was to outsource overseas because the labor is cheap.

Based upon true events, both plans were embraced by innocent and gullible captains of industry - the articles and books fall under the category of "Fairy Tales" but the actual events, as they unfolded, into many a nightmare.

Straw Poll

On which operating systems are you writing code?
Let's see if things have changed since we last ran this. "writing code" meaning editing, building, and running the code on that OS.
