"Software projects should only be estimated in days, weeks, months or years.

Not a specific number of weeks, mind you. Just saying "It'll take weeks" or "It's months worth of work" is as good as it gets."

-- Johan Oskarsson

Don't get mislead by "Microsoft ❤️ Open Source" tag - that is not something top decision makers there live by. It takes years for Steve Ballmer's (who called Linux, the flagship open source project, "cancer") reek to fade away and apparently mindset hasn't shifted enough.

Apple’s photo scanning program breaks encryption, endangering the privacy and security of users. Don’t take our word for it—watch a livestream panel discussion with representatives from human, digital, and children’s rights groups:

Yikes! Since the DNS records of Facebook/Instagram/WhatsApp can't be resolved anymore, every device with one of their apps installed is now actively DDoSing recursive DNS resolvers.
