Leading Questions About Immovables

I think the following questions are mostly about legacy but also fundamentals

  1. Why aren't there any spelling bees in Spanish?
  2. Why doesn't Chrome have a reading view? (this one not as much)
  3. Why does Windows have to install to C:? Why not Z:, 1:, A:, \c or /windows?
  4. Why wasn't there a Windows 9?
  5. Why is node_modules so large?

This is not the same kind of question:

  1. Why are CPUs square when wafers are round?

And then there are some more universal questions which I think are really interesting

  1. Why can't we just build a machine and a language that always works where bugs are impossible? Or better yet, could we ever?
