Commands we wish could rule

If we could add a command to improve computing, what would we wish for? Here is a list of commands that we may want to rule in future computing.


    This command would generate an uncontrollable urge in all managers in your company to re-instate all the software training budgets they ignored or cut.


    All software users would gain a ravenous appetite to read all documentation available on the command of their choice.


    All the dry documentation would now be fun to read and understandable.


    When given a desired result, its_in_there will be able to list many examples of getting what you want.


    A software user will gain the will and courage to test and try out the software. The software user will become confident that the job -can- be done with the software.


    When talking with the software vendor, the customer will be completely coherent, logical and easy to understand.


    The software users 10 years of experience working with package A will be converted into 10 years of experience in working with package B.


    This will sort out all user errors and re-instruct the user before a bug is submitted.


    This command will instruct the software vendor on why it is a bug, not a user error.


    The software vendor will have infinite resources to fix the customers problems in a matter of seconds.


    Put an enhancement request on top of the list of commands to be added in the next rev. (modifier of infinite_resources)


    This would merge the technology of graphical user interfaces with great interface designs.


    No matter the schedule, problem or blame, everyone remains cool calm and professional.


    This would be invoked during the design phase of software.  Quality would become part of the design, not an afterthought.

 These rules do not reference any specific person, company or software package. They are comical exaggerations of the occurrences of everyday life in the field of software. Any relation to events anywhere past, present or future is entirely coincidental.
