Iam trying to understand what the BJP is trying to gain by arguing against the expulsion of all the parliament members who were involved in the cash-for-question scandal.
Advani, terming the MPs' action as "stupidity", argued that the expulsion was not "commensurate" with the offence. "It's like inflicting capital punishment for unbecoming conduct," he said while leading the walkout.Mr. Advani, When we elect people like you to the parliament, we don't expect you to get involved in "stupid" acts like taking bribes just for doing your job. As a party president, you should have asked these guys to resign on day one of the expose. By walking out of parliament protesting against the expulsion, you have just made sure that i never vote for your party in the future. And be sure that iam not the only one taking this decision today.

Linus encourages people to switch to KDE. I liked KDE far better than GNOME anyway (but not for the reasons he is mentioning)!
This "users are idiots, and are confused by functionality" mentality of Gnome is a disease. If you think your users are idiots, only idiots will use it. I don't use Gnome, because in striving to be simple, it has long since reached the point where it simply doesn't do what I need it to do.
Please, just tell people to use KDE.
Do read the Follow-ups to the mail too.

Most of the general purpose languages like C, C++, Java start their array index from 0. Isn't it more natural to start from 1? Now the last index of the array is also the size of the array, thus avoiding subtraction of 1 to get to the last index. Also 0 could have been used to represent an invalid index in the array. What could have been the reason to start indexing from 0?
