"What happens when you read some doc and either it doesn't answer your question or is demonstrably wrong? In Linux, you say "Linux sucks" and go read the code. In Windows/Oracle/etc you say "Windows sucks" and start banging your head against the wall."
--- Denis Vlasenko on lkml

Programming - the process of adding bugs to software.

Debugging - the process of finding and changing bugs in software into different bugs.

Software bug - any undesired feature in software.

... One programmer's "feature" is the next's "bug"
