Re: Wrong move

Maybe it's all part of a cunning plan by canonical to lure M$ to their doom.. keep adding stupid to Ubuntu to pull M$ further down while the community Lubuntu, Xubuntu and others like Mint provide useful workable versions.

@ Penguin Slapper

Dictionary definition of Half Life: The time required for half the nuclei in a sample of a specific isotopic species to undergo radioactive decay.

basically, within that time period half of the radioactive isotope has decayed into the next element in that particular chain, leaving half behind.

so after those "hours " are up, there will still be some left to be found, Thats why the iodine with a half life of 8 days will take weeks to decay, not just 1 week and a day.
