The more I ask about nuclear plants, the less happy I am.

I feel like if I push on someone will eventually tell me they're running Norton antivirus.

@malin The fact that they run Windows makes them ~90% less secure.

AVs are one of the most useless programs on planet earth these days.
Most malware isn't using security holes anymore. But rely on the user to give them permissions (social engineering).

I prefer nuclear plants over coal plants though.

We should have done more research on nuclear power (instead of developing nukes :p)

@Ghosty @malin I don't know about any newer ones, but ones that are here aren't actually run by any modern computers. They use really old windows (nt4, 2000), but for monitoring purposes mostly.
And nuclear is *the cleanest* energy that we have. Mass hysteria only makes things worse.


@nesc Just to be clear - I'm not dissing nuclear energy inherently.

However, I'd like to create mass hysteria about anything networked which controls things.

@malin People don't care, they don't even care about things that concern them immediately, nuclear plants as well may be in another universe for them.
