  • OT: A new era?

    I just saw the post about locating the Matrix Save button and it made me think (not that my thinking is really related to the question in that thread)... It's inevitable that now, or in the near future, there will be a new generation of computer-users who won't recognize the floppy disk icon as a save button, since they won't recognize the floppy disk at all!
    Kind of funny... it puts a whole new meaning to the idea of future-proofing your software.
    (Mind you, they may also recognize the icon as "save file" without having any idea why the icon looks that way! Which is, in a way, even stranger...)
