"Nobody will ever need more than 640k RAM!"-- Bill Gates, 1981

"Windows 95 needs at least 8 MB RAM."-- Bill Gates, 1996

"Nobody will ever need Windows 95."-- logical conclusion

'Open Source' heisst, jeder Anwender erhaelt eine Kopie des Quellcodes. Dabei stossen Entwickler, die mit Linux arbeiten, haeufig auf Sicherheitsluecken. Auf Microsoft Windows trifft dies nicht zu.

Microsoft, 'Linux im Handel - Was jeder Haendler wissen sollte'

A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history, with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.

Mitch Ratcliffe

A computer without Microsoft is like ice cream without ketchup.

A simple user interface is not boring. It excites users because it lets them connect with the content and engage the company behind the site.

Jacob Nielson --http://www.useit.com/alertbox/20040830.html

A very clever software guy said that he would, first, demonstrate a very complex solution to his customer's problem (which impressed the customer) then, second, show the much simpler and more elegant solution (which impressed them even more).


A well-designed and humane interface does not need to be split into beginner and expert subsystems.

Jef Raskin (2000) - The Humane Interface: New Directions for Designing Interactive Systems

A year spent in artificial intelligence is enough to make one believe in God.

B: Na und?

A: Drei Warnungen zwar, aber das Programm läuft.

Adding more features adds more code and thus adds new bugs.

Andrew S. Tanenbaum, Modern Operating Systems

Any feature is a bug unless it can be turned off.

Heuer's Law, 1990

Because nobody actually creates perfect code the first time around, except me, but there is only one of me, right?

Linus Torvaldshttps://git.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/LinusTalk200705Transcript

Beware of bugs in the above code; I have only proved it correct, not tried it.

Donald E. Knuth

Booting is not a repair technique.

from the E-mu Emax manual

Calm down, it's only ones and zeroes.

Computer science is the first engineering discipline ever in which the complexity of the objects created is limited by the skill of the creator and not limited by the strength of the raw materials.

Brian K. Reid

Das Gehirn ist ganz anders als ein Computer, obwohl es gar nicht mal schlecht funktioniert, wenn man berücksichtigt, dass es von Nichtfachleuten hergestellt und größtenteils vom Zufall programmiert wird.

Der Programmierer steht im etwa dem gleichen Verhaeltnis zum Informatiker wie der Bediener eines Taschenrechners zum Mathmatiker. :-)


Diagnose? Erklaerungen? Reproduzierbare Loesungen?

Sowas wollen nur Leute, die von EDV nichts verstehen.

Don't anthropomorphize computers. They hate that.

Don’t blame me for the fact that competent programming, as I view it as an intellectual possibility, will be too difficult for ‘the average programmer’, you must not fall into the trap of rejecting a surgical technique because it is beyond the capabilities of the barber in his shop around the corner.

Edsger Wybe Dijkstra

EDV - Ende der Vernunft

Eine NP-Maschine ist ein Berechnungsmodell. Man kann ihre Eigenschaften mathematisch praezise definieren. Das heisst nicht, dass man sie auch bauen oder programmieren kann. (Auch wenn Windows schon ganz gut den Nichtdeterminismus unterstuetzt. :-)

Fahren zwei Informatiker im Auto, ploetzlich faellt der Motor aus.

Der eine: 'Mist, ein Bug im Betriebssystem.'

Der andere: 'Komm, wir steigen aus, machen alle Tueren einmal auf und zu. Vielleicht geht's dann wieder.'

For creative people, this device is nothing.

Heut' debug ich, morgen brows' ich, uebermorgen cast' ich die Koenigin auf int.

I bought a few small lumps of silicon at a local "healing crystals" store.

A small sign at the store claimed that the mystical properties of silicon allow it to reduce stress.

I thought this was ironic, because as a computer programmer, most of the stress in my life is caused by silicon.

Drew Olbrich, http://www.traipse.com/silicon/

I have always wished that my computer would be as easy to use as my telephone. My wish has come true. I no longer know how to use my telephone.

Bjarne Stroustrup

I remember back when a 'mouse' had four legs, 'PostScript' was what came at the end of a letter, and 'Unix' was a term for someone who'd had his works cut out for him.

I think of programming as a kind of craft, and a good craftsman pays attention to the details, even if they aren't the real goal.

Ian Bicking, http://blog.ianbicking.org/code-pickiness.html#P158

I understand that Bill Gates has a house at this lake. He may have 50 billion dollars but not the balls to swim thrugh Lake Washington. I have the balls. But they are not for sale.

Tom Green - MTV

I use emacs, which might be thought of as a thermonuclear word processor. It was created by Richard Stallman; enough said. It is written in Lisp, which is the only computer language that is beautiful. It is colossal, and yet it only edits straight ASCII text files, which is to say, no fonts, no boldface, no underlining. In other words, the engineer-hours that, in the case of Microsoft Word, were devoted to features like mail merge, and the ability to embed feature-length motion pictures in corporate memoranda, were, in the case of emacs, focused with maniacal intensity on the deceptively simple-seeming problem of editing text. If you are a professional writer—i.e., if someone else is getting paid to worry about how your words are formatted and printed—emacs outshines all other editing software in approximately the same way that the noonday sun does the stars. It is not just bigger and brighter; it simply makes everything else vanish.

Neal Stephensonhttp://www.theserverside.com/discussions/thread.tss?thread_id=61651

Internet Explorer is a slow, buggy, bloated piece of crap browser with the stability of a one-legged camel on a ship in a huge f***ing storm.

It's all talk until the tests run.

Ward Cunningham, according to http://patricklogan.blogspot.com/2005/02/speaking-in-objects-vs-code-complete.html

Jesus saves, Buddha does incremental backups.


Just because MS-Windows holds 90% of the market doesn't mean it's superior. Remember 90% of all animals are insects.

Let's give out a bootable, stand-alone version of GNU emacs, then come back in 9 months and find whoever's using it--and kill them.

Keith Bostic

Linux is only free if your time has no value.

Jamie Zawinski - http://www.jwz.org/

Make it work. Make it right. Make it beautiful. Make it fast.


Man soll schon C-Programmierer gesehen haben, die im Aufzug die drei druecken, wenn sie in den vierten Stock wollen...

Most undergraduate degrees in computer science these days are basically Java vocational training.

Alan Kayhttp://bc.tech.coop/blog/060224.html

New media may at first appear as mere codes of transmission for older achievement and established patterns of thought. But nobody could make the mistake of supposing that phonetic writing merely made it possible for the Greeks to set down in visual order what they had though and known before writing. In the same way printing made literatur

McLuhan in 1960, in McLuhan E. & Zingrone F. (1997 ) nach Liquid Information - http://liquidinformation.org/history.html

Nicht jeder Informatiker will Programmierer werden und nicht jeder C-Programmierer hat das Zeug zum Informatiker.


Only 2% of the population can read source code. (And free software doesn’t matter if no one can read it!)


Please help - firewall burnt down last package.

Programmers are busy writing the next best idiot proof software. The universe, in the meantime, is busy making the next best idiot. The universe is winning.

REALITY.SYS corrupted ... reboot Universe [Y,n]?

Reinventing the wheel is a great way to learn more about wheels.


Release early, release often.

Misshandle es wie du willst, aber verkaufe es nicht ;-)

Simplicity plays a central role in all timeless designs. We appreciate solutions that - all other things being equal - solve problems in a clear, economical, fashion. The most powerful designs are always the result of a continuous process of simplification and refinement.

Kevin Mullet and Darrel Sano (1995) - Designing Visual Interfaces

Simplicity: An interface should be simple (not simplistic), easy to learn, and easy to use. It must also provide access to all functionality of an application. Maximizing functionality and maintaining simplicity work against each other in the interface. An effective design balances these objectives.

Microsoft (1999) - Windows User Experience: Official Guidelines for User Interface Developers and Designers

Software is like Sex, its better when its free.

Linus Torvalds

Some people worry that artificial intelligence will make us feel inferior, but then, anybody in his right mind should have an inferiority complex every time he looks at a flower.

Alan Kayhttp://bc.tech.coop/blog/060224.html

SQL, Lisp, and Haskell are the only programming languages that I've seen where one spends more time thinking than typing.

Philip Greenspunhttp://www.paulgraham.com/quotes.html

The cheapest, fastest, and most reliable components of a computer system are those that aren't there.

Gordon Bell, DEC

The end of the world is best viewed with Microsoft Universe Exploder v6.66.

The goal of Computer Science is to build something that will last at least until we've finished building it.

The hope is that, in not too many years, human brains and computing machines will be coupled together very tightly, and that the resulting partnership will think as no human brain has ever thought and process data in a way not approached by the information-handling machines we know today.

J.C.R. Licklider --http://www.technomanifestos.net/index.pl?Man-Computer_Symbiosis

The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armor to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place.

Douglas Adams, on Windows 95

The only "intuitive" interface is the nipple. After that it's all learned.


The problem isnt Outlook, its Windows.

Tim Bray in http://www.tbray.org/ongoing/When/200x/2004/01/26/ThisWeeksVirus

The software said it requires Windows 95 or better, so I installed Linux.

The trouble with WYSIWYG is that what you see is all you get.

Brian Kernighan

There are two ways of constructing a software design. One way is to make it so simple that there are obviously no deficiencies. And the other way is to make it so complicated that there are no obvious deficiencies.

C.A.R. Hoare

These are the people who proudly call themselves 'hackers' - not as the term is now abused by journalists to mean a computer criminal, but in its true and original sense of an enthusiast, an artist, a tinkerer, a problem solver, an expert.

Treat your password like your toothbrush. Don't let anybody else use it, and get a new one every six months.

Clifford Stoll

We don't understand the software, and sometimes we don't understand the hardware, but we can *see* the blinking lights!

What goes up, must come down. Ask any system administrator.

When we write programs that "learn", it turns out that we do and they don't.

Alan Perlishttp://bc.tech.coop/blog/071226.html

Who needs windows and gates in a world without walls and fences?

Why is it drug addicts and computer afficionados are both called users?

Clifford Stoll

Windows - the only virus with a GUI

Windows is NOT a virus:

A virus is small and efficient.

windows: in trouble reboot

linux: in trouble be root


You just change a term and they think its better technology.
