"Great, with AI we can get rid of a bunch of employees and save money"
"Perhaps with AI we can have people doing more interesting things, and take away a lot of the drudgery"
boil down to exactly the same thing.

Haven't you read the offer the studios made to the WGA?
They agreed to pretty much everything they asked for, including AI controls, except for the size of the writer's room.
They don't want to have fewer writers in the shows they have left, but they don't want to have to hire more of them either.
The reasoning made by the guild about getting more writers so they learn the business makes sense, but not at 11,000 dollars per week.
" So how much is 1 minute of my monthly Netflix or Prime sub work?"
I think this is the question that completely breaks the economics of streaming services, you either have hundreds of millions of subscribers or you go bankrupt.
All these current services are going to have to consolidate like crazy if the studios don't want to go under with them.
And then it took a little over ten years to go from the awesome CGI in Iron man to the horror of Ant-man 3.
ChatGPT is not taking over writer's jobs, they are losing them because streamers are tired of losing billions and they have stopped greenlighting everything, even Netflix, the only ones making any money, have had to stop doing it.
"For a tiny percent of the world's tech revenues, a new, universal, and frankly fabulous education system could be built and deployed with the help of the finest pedagogues available"
So many people around the world thinking that extremily complex problems can be easily solved as long as enough money is thrown at them.
Sweet summer childs.
And before you reply with the obvious counterpoint, no, I don't think they can be solved without money.
Could that be what prompted the service mentioned in the last paragraph of the article?
"In May, EDB launched a so-called "risk free" Oracle migration service in which customers signing a two-year contract to run a 64-core instance of PostgreSQL would not start paying until the new system is up and running and has been tested"
Of course they were far right, they didn't want their property burned, that disagreement clearly show they were nothing but facists whose property deserved to be burned.
Oh, and I didn't mention who was responsible for burning anyhting, I was just explaining the real meaning of words, you see, I am sick and tired of seeing normies saying that political fans like you do nothing but lie.
Of course, you don't, definitions matter.
"Antifa just means “Anti-Facist”"
After all, as we all know, violent extremists that go around beating people always tell the truth, so if they say they are anti facist, then they are.
It so easy, you just have to use the right definitions:
Facist: adj, anyone who dares to disagree with me about anything.
See? Case closed.
'mostly peaceful demostration': expresion to use while a building burns in the background.
If they did that it would take them, easily, 10 years just to be at the state LibreOffice is now, in the meantime current users would have to keep using the current version, they would just switch to something else.
Also, many bugs come from edge cases nobody would predict in advance, rewritting from scratch means reintroducing those bugs.
Refactoring old code may be hard, boring, thankless work, but it does work.
"There is zero evidence of that, except in the fever dreams of idiots like Hannity.
There is 100000000000x more evidence of Trump crimes than Joe Biden crimes"
So, you want to prosecute Trumpf on zero evidence?
Edited because I remembered people usually disconect their brains when it comes to anything political, so please let me remind you what happens when you multiply by zero.
A few months ago, we upgraded a CAD/CAM suite to the lastest version that requieres Win10, and I asked "Many computers are still in Win7, will it work?" and they answerd "sure, there is a workaround".
Yeah, except that after installing the programs in those computers, printing would stop working, first in one computer, then another, then another,...
And they didn't support Win7, so the only solution was to upgrade to Win10.
And so it will be with Win11, we may loath it all we want, we may say that not having a local account isn't acceptable, but we will have to bend the knee.
I may use Linux exclusively at home and have Linux servers at work, but that CAD/CAM suite is not going to be available for Linux any time soon, or ever really.
